CENTRAL TEXAS - The McDonald's Heart of Texas Co-op will host a Good Friday Fundraiser to benefit local 100 Clubs, which offer financial assistance to the families of first responders killed or critically injured in the line of duty.
Between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on April 14, a portion of all sales at participating McDonald's restaurants will be donated to one of the following clubs: The 100 Club of Central Texas (Bell County), The Heart of Texas 100 Club (McLennan County), The Hill Country 100 Club (Lampasas County) or The 100 Club serving Robertson and Burleson Counties.
"McDonald's is a proud supporter of local 100 Clubs and greatly appreciates what they do for the families of fallen and critically injured first responders, the true heroes," Etta Moore, executive director of The 100 Club of Central Texas, said in a press release.
This is the first time McDonald's has held a Good Friday Fundraiser of this sort, but law enforcement welcomed the idea.
"Events like McDonald's Good Friday offers the community an easy way to donate and give back to those who put their life on the line for our safety," Belton Police Chief Gene Ellis said in the press release.
The McDonald's Heart of Texas Co-op includes 31 restaurants and six local owners. You can find the latest information about the fundraiser by clicking here.
