Special to the Times


BLYTHE, Calif. - Blythe McDonald's restaurant hosted a month-long McTeacher's Night Challenge in February for Appleby Elementary, Margaret White Elementary, Ruth Brown Elementary, and Blythe Middle Schools and raised more than $1,700.

Appleby Elementary won the "McTeacher's Night Challenge" raising the most money with its fundraiser and received a $500 donation.

As part of McTeacher's Night, a portion of McDonald's sales during a two-hour period benefited each school. School principals and teachers "worked" at McDonald's greeting customers, working the registers. Families of students and local school supporters visited McDonald's and tipped their teachers to help raise funds.

"I'm delighted to bring this McTeacher's Night Challenge to the Blythe community and work with our local schools to raise money for education," said Joe Johnson, McDonald's owner. "I take great pride as a local business owner in giving back to my community."

In 2013, Blythe McDonald's restaurant served free breakfasts to grades 2-8 students taking the STAR Test and provided free Extra Value Meals to local teachers on Teacher Appreciation Day.  The restaurant also hosted Backpack Saturday, distributing free backpacks to local students to prepare for school and Family Literacy Day, distributing free books to encourage families to read together.

Blythe schools are "lovin' it!"
