Connect Youth benefitted from McHappy Day. The local organization got $4,715 from the annual fundraiser. Program Coordinator Victoria Robertson says the money came from local McDonald’s franchises.

The money will be put towards programming at Connect Youth, which serves kids across Leeds and Grenville. Robertson says some of the funds will be used to buy food.

Connect Youth is located at South Grenville District High School in Prescott. The organization focuses on providing support, advocacy and referrals to youth ages 14 to 21. For more details about Connect Youth, click here.
