Fries that raise Funds: McDonald’s helps patients at Allied Services

Clarks Summit, October 5, 2021 - The Mueller family, representing 16 regional McDonald’s restaurants, recently presented a check in support of Allied Services and the WNEP’s Ryan’s Run. The annual charity campaign raises funds and awareness for children and adults with disabilities at Allied Services.

The donation represents proceeds from a “Large Fry” fundraiser conducted at Mueller Family McDonald’s restaurants in Allentown, Carbondale, Clarks Summit, Dickson City, Eynon, Hanover, Honesdale, Mountain Top, Old Forge, Scranton, Shavertown, South Bethlehem, Tunkhannock, and Wyoming in September. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of every large fry was designated for Allied Services.

A total of 62,750 large fries were sold across the 16 locations during September, equating to roughly $16,000 in funds for children and adults with disabilities at Allied Services. Additional funds were raised. The 16 McDonald’s restaurants raised an additional $2,000+ through the sale of Ryan’s Run wristbands.

Every day, Allied Services touches the lives of more than 5,000 people in homes and facilities throughout Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania. The non-profit health system’s continuum of care for people with disabilities, chronic illness, and life-changing injuries includes physical rehabilitation, skilled nursing, pediatric services, behavioral health programs, residential programs, vocational training programs, and hospice and palliative care.
