UPDATE: Owner of the Castlegar McDonald’s, Brad Zubick, said that $1,962 was raised for the Food Bank at the Castlegar restaurant, while the Trail locations took in another $3,402.

Thank you to all of the volunteers who put in shifts and those who made a point of stopping by on McHappy Day to donate.



Today is McHappy Day and the Castlegar McDonald’s at 1991 Columbia Avenue is joining other McDonald’s restaurants across Canada in dishing out fast-food meals to support worthy causes.

Bradley and Kathleen Zubick, owners of the Castlegar franchise, said $1 from every Big Mac, Happy Meal, and hot McCafé beverage bought will be donated to the Castlegar Food Bank.

City of Castlegar councillor Susan Heaton-Sherstobitoff looked as if she was having fun tending to orders at the drive-through along with Mountain FM intern, Harley Nedland.

“It’s all about the kids,” said Heaton-Sherstobitoff. “I think everyone on council is taking a shift or two. I think the mayor is coming for a shift at 6 p.m. during rush hour. We’ll see if he can keep up.”

A tally of the amount raised should be available on Thursday.
