PITTSBURGH, Pa., July 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Community organizations in need of an easy and effective fundraiser can now contact their closest McDonald's® restaurant to schedule an Arch Support fundraising event.

Available only in the tri-state area, the new program encourages members of the beneficiary organization to purchase a meal via the McDonald's Mobile App during a designated time frame. In exchange, the local McDonald's® restaurant donates a portion of the proceeds from all mobile orders during that time to the non-profit group.

"The community non-profits that contribute so much to our quality of life have been profoundly impacted by the pandemic," said Dan Delligatti, president of the local McDonald's consortium of McDonald's Owner/Operators. "That's why we developed a new approach that allows groups to raise funds while abiding by social distancing guidelines."
