McDonald’s in Three Rivers hosted a ‘McTeacher’s Night’ on Wednesday (March 6) to benefit Eastside Elementary School in Constantine.
McDonald’s donated ten percent of the earnings – drive-thru included – between 4 and 8 p.m. Eastside received $403.73 which it will use for its Bucket Filling Program.
Teacher volunteers walked around selling cookies for one dollar.
Children were offered a free tour of the kitchen during which a McDonald’s employee showed students an area where food is prepared. According to Eastside Principal Jessica Barth, students liked the walk-in cooler area the best.
Bucket Fillers is a program to reinforce positive behavior and is based on the book “Have Your Filled a Bucket Today?’
