At this event, teachers put on McDonald’s aprons and serve McDonald’s food to students and parents from the school community. Part of the night’s profits go to the school district.
(From the website) In March, McDonald’s Restaurants in the St. Louis/Metro East Area partnered with educators to raise money for schools in Missouri and Illinois. Over the past nine years, McTeacher’s Night has provided students, faculty and parents with the opportunity to increase school pride and generate funds for their school by allowing them to take over a McDonald’s location from 4-8 p.m., with a percentage of the sales going directly to their school. Since the inception of McTeacher’s Night in 2003, local McDonald’s Restaurants have raised more than half-a-million dollars to benefit area schools.
All school levels (elementary, middle and senior high schools) were represented on McTeacher’s Night, including public, private and parochial schools. “This was a great social and fundraising event for our parents and students,” said one local principal. “The manager and staff were tremendous!”
McTeacher’s Night takes place at participating McDonald’s Restaurants in Missouri and the surrounding areas twice a year. The next McTeacher’s Night will take place on October 2nd, 2012. If you are interested in participating in McTeacher’s Night, please contact your local McDonald’s.
