McDonald’s restaurant in Gilroy donated $800 to Brownell Middle School as part of their McTeacher’s Night fundraiser that the First Street restaurant hosted in late-March.
McDonald’s, located at 797 First St., partnered with Brownell for their signature fundraising event. During McTeacher’s Night, the school’s principal and teachers “worked” at McDonald’s greeting customers, manning the registers, and assisting in the kitchen area. Families of students and local school supporters were invited to visit McDonald’s the evening of the fundraiser to help raise money for Brownell.
“It was a pleasure to work with Brownell Middle School to raise money for their programs,” said Steve Peat, McDonald’s owner/operator in Gilroy.
“We host McTeacher’s Nights with schools throughout the community as part of our commitment to education. This event provides a simple and fun way for schools to raise much-needed funds. The teachers and children have a wonderful time, and so do we!”
