                The Yuma and Imperial Valley schools that raise the most money will receive additional $1,000 donations from McDonald’s owners Joe Johnson and Jose Leon.

As part of each McTeacher’s Night fundraiser, a portion of McDonald’s front counter sales during 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. will benefit each school. Each school’s principal and teachers will “work” at McDonald’s greeting customers, working the registers.  Families of students and local school supporters are encouraged to visit McDonald’s and tip their teachers to help raise funds.

“We are delighted to bring this McTeacher’s Night Challenge to Yuma and the Imperial Valley and work with our local schools to raise money for education,” said Joe Johnson and Jose Leon. “We take great pride as local business owners in giving back to our communities.”
