Local McDonald’s Supports AdventHealth Palm Coast’s Cancer Resource Center

PALM COAST, Fla., October 31, 2019 — To support the fight against cancer, McDonald's at Palm Coast Landing near Town Center, 5190 E. Moody Blvd., hosted an instore fundraiser to support the AdventHealth Palm Coast Foundation.

On Oct. 29, the McDonald’s location donated a percentage of sales between the dinner hours of 5 to 7 pm. All in all, the local McDonald’s team donated $500 to support the AdventHealth Palm Coast Judith C. Macko Cancer Resource Center.

Opened in February 2010, the Judith C. Macko Cancer Resource Center offers an extensive collection of books, brochures, articles and videotapes about cancer. Cancer patients and their families, and community members, such as health professionals, students, and teachers, are welcome to use all of the library's free services. In addition, cancer patients can receive wigs, head coverings, mastectomy bras and prostheses, all free of charge.

“We’re honored McDonald’s chose to partner with us,” said John Subers, AdventHealth Palm Coast Foundation director. “Jennifer Hodges, their guest services manager, visited our Judith C Macko Cancer Resource a few weeks ago and was so moved by the good work our volunteers do to serve those fighting cancer in our community that they immediately offered to help.”

“We are excited to support our local community and know these funds raised will be used to support those who are going through cancer,” said Jason Blanton, McDonald's at Palm Coast Landing’s director of operations.
