A Big Mac or Chicken McWrap at any McDonald’s in Macarthur restaurant next Wednesday could go a long way in supporting young people and preventing drug and alcohol harm.

McDonald’s in Macarthur and local licensee, Peter Meadows, have renewed their ongoing support and partnership with Youth Solutions, naming the youth charity as its Charity Fun Night recipient for Wednesday 22 March 2023.

“We continue supporting Youth Solutions because we share similar values around taking care of our young people and contributing positively to the community,” Mr Meadows said.

“As one of the largest youth employers in Macarthur, we know how important it is to provide support networks for the next generation.”

A percentage of sales made next Wednesday at McDonald’s in Macarthur restaurants, between 3 – 5pm at food courts and 5 – 7pm at drive-thru restaurants, will be donated to Youth Solutions to help the youth charity as it works to educate and support young people around drugs, alcohol and related issues.

Youth Solutions Chief Executive Officer, Geraldine Dean thanked McDonald’s in Macarthur for not only raising funds for the charity, but for helping to share Youth Solutions’ work with its staff and customers.

“We cannot thank the team enough for fundraising in support of our charity and for sharing our services and supports with our community, which includes their young workforce and customers,” Ms Dean said.

Local licensee, Peter Meadows, encouraged the community to get behind next week’s Charity Fun Night.

“We hope our contribution can help Youth Solutions to continue to provide that support and we encourage our community to get behind this year’s Charity Fun Night for Youth Solutions,” Mr Meadows said.
