Starting Saturday, February 12, McDonald’s restaurants in Bronson, Coldwater, Quincy and Tekonsha will be selling Walk for Warmth donation “houses” to raise money for Community Action’s annual Walk for Warmth fundraiser. From February 12 to the Walk event on Saturday, February 26, patrons of McDonald’s can purchase a paper “house” for $1.00. Donors can then sign their names on the “houses,” which will be displayed in the restaurant. Proceeds collected will be used to help low-to-moderate income individuals and families stay warm this winter, through Community Action’s utility bill assistance program.
“We are very grateful for all that McDonald’s restaurants do for the Walk,” said Nancy Macfarlane, Community Action CEO. “McDonald’s restaurants have raised tens of thousands of dollars for the Walk over the years, and helped thousands of people in our communities stay warm.”
In addition to purchasing a “house” at your local McDonald’s, you can help Community Action by collecting pledges for your local Walk as an individual walker, or by starting and walking with a team from your church, school, or organization. If you are unable to participate in the Walk but still want to help, please mail in your donation (PO Box 1026, Battle Creek, MI 49016) or drop it off at your local Community Action office in Coldwater. Community Action ensures that your donation will remain in the community of your choice, so please make checks payable to “Community Action Walk for Warmth” and designate the community to which you would like your donation credited.
