Racine McDonald's restaurants stepping up for Mitchell students

RACINE (WITI) – The seven McDonald’s restaurants in Racine will join forces on Monday, March 31st to raise funds for the fire-damaged Mitchell Elementary and Middle Schools.

On that day, five percent from the entire day’s sales from each of the Racine McDonald’s restaurants will be donated to the schools’ rebuilding efforts.

“The day after the fire, I received calls from several teachers and parents to ask about running a special fundraiser for Mitchell,” said Dave Jones who operates six McDonald’s restaurants with his family.  “So the idea really came from the community wanting to help, and we were happy to come up with a plan.”

Customers are also invited to donate school supplies at the restaurants, where McDonald’s personnel will ensure the supplies get into the hands of the teachers and students.

The Racine McDonald’s restaurants participating in the fundraising event are:

    If there are any Racine teachers – from Mitchell or other schools – who would like to get involved by helping on the day of the fundraiser, they are encouraged to call Dave Jones, 262-497-6964.
