Several McDonald’s locations in Mississauga and Brampton will be assisting frontline workers who have worked tirelessly to serve their communities during the pandemic through the Feed the Frontlines campaign.
As of Monday (November 22), partial proceeds from coffees sold at 15 McDonald’s locations in Mississauga and Brampton will go towards William Osler Health System Foundation’s (Osler Foundation) Compassion Fund.
The Compassion Fund was implemented to support the most urgent needs of health-care workers, including wellness and respite resources for staff, physicians and volunteers, such as massage therapy, to ensure their emotional and mental well-being at Osler’s Brampton Civic Hospital and Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness sites.
“I think I can speak for all our restaurant owners by saying that we are excited to give back to such a worthy cause, especially during the pandemic,” Kathy Damrell, a McDonald’s franchisee in Brampton, said in a news release.
“Family and community are at the heart of McDonald’s core values and the Feed the Frontlines initiative allows us to continue our ongoing support for Osler Foundation, as a portion of every coffee purchase starting on November 22 will directly support frontline workers in need,” she said.
