McDonalds Treats Rescue Mission with Lunch and Donation
Allentown, PA – McDonald’s of Greater Philadelphia donated $1000 to the Allentown Rescue Mission Wednesday, as part of its Community Ambassadors program.
Sean McIntyre, owner and operator of the Emmaus McDonald’s, as well as one in Easton, was on-hand for a check presentation at the Allentown Rescue Mission. For McIntyre, McDonald’s is a family tradition. His father and brother are also owner/operators of several McDonalds in the Lehigh Valley.
“It’s part of McDonald’s philosophy to give back to the community,” McIntyre said during the check presentation. “We believe in what the Allentown Rescue Mission does,” he added.
Three workers from the Emmaus McDonald’s joined McIntyre at lunchtime, serving hamburgers, fries and salads to Allentown Rescue Mission clients and staff.
“We sincerely appreciate McDonald’s support,” said Allentown Rescue Mission Executive Director Gary Millspaugh. “The Allentown Rescue Mission is able to help hundreds of homeless men every year, thanks to this charitable giving from our community.”
