NIGHT IN GIVES

The RMHC Canada network of programs serves over 25,000 families annually across Canada.
“The launch of this exclusive line not only gives Canadians an added reason to enjoy McDonald’s at home, but it also gives them an opportunity to help support families who can’t be at home, thanks to 100 per cent of the proceeds from the merchandise sold going to RMHC Canada,” said Jeff Kroll, SVP Restaurant Support Officer, McDonald’s Canada. “Additionally, by partnering with Drake General Store, Canadians can secure a collector’s item from this limited apparel and accessories launch, to help compliment their McDelivery Night In.”
