McDonald’s Good Friday Fundraiser Benefiting the 100 Clubs of Central Texas

McDonalds wants to give back to families of fallen and critically injured responders

VICTORIA, Texas – The South Central Texas McDonald’s Co-op will host its Annual Good Friday Fundraiser benefiting the 100 Clubs of Central Texas and surrounding communities.

On Friday, April 2, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., a percentage of the sales from all participating McDonald’s restaurants will be donated to local 100 Clubs.

The Good Friday Fundraiser was established to financially assist 100 Clubs and support their mission of providing financial assistance to the families of first responders. It also serves as a way for first responders to interact with the community. Since that time, $526,137 has been raised for local 100 Club chapters.

“Our first responders put their lives on the line for our safety and this fundraiser allows the community a way to give back,“ said Robert Wezeman, McDonald’s Owner/Operator. “McDonald’s in South Central Texas is an honored and proud supporter of our local 100 Clubs and deeply appreciates what they do for our communities.”

Grahame Jones, Central Texas Executive Director, shared his appreciation on the Good Friday Fundraiser.

“The 100 Clubs of Central Texas deeply appreciates McDonald’s for their continued support of our organization. We encourage everyone to join us at your local McDonald’s for lunch on Good Friday to show support for these vital members of our community, our local heroes,” said Jones.

Since 1983, The 100 Club of Central Texas provides immediate financial and emotional assistance to first responders and their families when there has been a line of duty death or critical injury.

The Club also funds a scholarship for active-duty first responders to further their education as they serve our communities. When a first responder has been permanently disabled in the line of duty and can no longer serve, The Club assists with retraining education expenses.  This scholarship is automatically available to those who serve. The Club also provides a scholarship to the children of first responders who have died in the line of duty. This scholarship is presented to the students upon their high school graduation.
