McDonald's Offering Free "Thank You" Meals to First Responders and Healthcare Workers
McDonald’s is saying thanks to frontline heroes by offering free “Thank You” meals to first responders and healthcare workers. Terry & Carita Wilburn, owner/ operators of local McDonald’s franchises based in Bayou Vista, said, “We wanted to take a moment to thank you for everything you are doing to keep our community safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. We at McDonald’s are inspired each day by you – the healthcare and first responder heroes. You have worked tirelessly for us, and now it is our turn to support you.”
Beginning Wednesday, April 22 through Tuesday, May 5, first responders and healthcare workers in the U.S. will be able to receive a FREE “Thank You Meal”, day or night, via carry out and drive-thru at participating McDonald’s locations by showing your work badge. At breakfast, individuals can choose from: an Egg McMuffin, Chicken McGriddles, or Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuit with any size soft drink, tea or hot coffee and a Hash Brown; and for lunch and dinner: a Double Cheeseburger, 6-Piece McNuggets or a Filet-O-Fish with any size soft drink, tea or hot coffee and small fries.
The Wilburns said, “We hope this small token of gratitude offers a simple, feel good moment to the heroes in our community. Now more than ever, McDonald’s is led by its purpose to support our communities around the country by reliably providing hot and delicious food. We are open and here to serve you.”
