McDonald’s Owners Donate 2,000 Turkeys to Chicagoland Residents

The season is here and as we all prepare for the holidays, there are thousands of stomachs that won’t be full due to economic constraints. The Black McDonald’s Operators Association of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana want to lighten those constraints for families throughout the Chicago and Northwest Indiana region.

They will be distributing 2,000 turkeys to help those who have been affected by unfortunate hardships.

Four hundred turkey baskets will be distributed at five different restaurant locations over the course of 4 days.

Chicagoland influencers such as Sonya Blakey, Angela Martin & Mark from Inspiration 1390 along with other community organizations have signed on to pitch in with this monumental effort!

The first distribution date will take place on Wednesday, November 16, at 740 E. 47th Street Chicago, IL 60653 from 8:00 a.m. until supplies run out.  .
