Maccas grant is open

McDONALD'S extended family is giving Queensland community groups and clubs impacted by the recent floods and Cyclone Yasi the opportunity to apply for a one-off cash or equipment grant to help them rebuild.

The McDonald's Queensland Community Grant initiative will offer clubs throughout the state the opportunity to get sites cleaned up and back serving their local communities once again.

Queensland Licensee Committee President, Adam Dando, said McDonald's licensees were happy to be able to help out the local community which always supports them.

“As an integral part of the local community, McDonald's and McDonald's Licensees enjoy a great relationship with local clubs and groups,” Adam said.

“Eligible clubs and groups can apply for a one-off cash or equipment grant to help them rebuild and get communities back on track by regaining access to local sporting and community clubs.

“Groups can apply for a grant to cover the costs of vital items such as new equipment or uniforms, or even to help with replacing a fridge or new paint and carpets at their clubhouse.”

To apply for a grant, groups should fill out the online application form at by March 18.

Successful applicants will be notified by McDonald's after entries close.

McDonald's Licensees and suppliers from all over Australia have banded together to fund the McDonald's Queensland Community Grant initiative.
