McDonald’s benefit for foster kids

CARLINVILLE (Feb. 8, 2018) – On Valentine’s Day, Carlinville McDonald’s will host a fundraiser to benefit the Royal Family Kids Camp, a week-long summer camp for local foster children. Proceeds from all sales from 5-7 p.m. will go to the camp, and the restaurant will have balloons for children and other activities.

In addition, a guitar signed by Christian music artist Matthew West will be on display, and raffle tickets to win the guitar will be sold. Donated by WBGL Radio, the new Squire-Fender electric guitar will also raise funds for the camp. Tickets can be purchased at the Body Depot, Deb’s Ceramics and Walton Chiropractic.

“We are so pleased that the community is supporting our efforts,” said camp co-director Melissa Stuemke. “WBGL, McDonald’s and all these companies are helping make a difference in the lives of these kids. Our camp last summer was a huge success, and we want this year’s to be even better!”

Royal Family Kids Camp hosts foster children ages 6-11 from Macoupin, Montgomery and surrounding counties who are invited by DCFS coordinators. All of the camp’s fundraising is through donations, and it is completely staffed by local volunteers from several area churches. All donations are tax-deductible; visit carlinville.royalfamilykids.org for details.
