Another McHappy Day has come to pass in Saskatchewan, and Swift Current has done its part to raise funds.  

McHappy Day at the South Service Road McDonald's location raised a grand total of $5,729.49 for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), all of which will remain in the province. RMHC's purpose is to help local people when visiting family members in the hospital, by preventing the expense of hotel rooms or other accommodations.  

McDonald’s Manager Neil Boehm was present for much of the festivity. 

“This year McHappy Day turned out great,” said Boehm. “Swift Current has truly shown their support towards the Ronald Mcdonald's House Charity helping families.” 

A family hosted by RMHC for two months came out to show their gratitude and thank the staff for their work. Local support came from everywhere, including RCMP officers and RBC employees. 

“Thank you to the two RCMP officers and three volunteers from the local RBC branch here in Swift Current, who joined us at the restaurant to help raise money for the RMHC,” expressed Boehm.  “Thank you to all the support from the community.” 

The funds raised will support the construction of two new buildings in Saskatchewan. A twelve-room house in Prince Albert and a 20-room house in Regina will be built to help residents of both northern and southern parts of the province.
