WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) – As we all know it’s been a tough year for teachers. McDonald’s in Elm Grove wanted to step up and give back.
They handed out some free breakfast to teachers at Steenrod Elementary. Not only that but all teachers in the country can get a free breakfast. All week long, teachers can start their morning with Mickey D’s free of charge. Local owner, Bob Stoltz, says he loves giving back to his community. Especially during such a critical time for educators.
“We’re just grateful to see them in person and just let them know in person how thankful we are of them . We wanted to show our appreciation to the educators and the community as well.”Bob Stoltz, McDonald’s Owner and Operator
“It’s nice to know that such a staple in our community like McDonald’s, that a lot of our kids visit there frequently, that they’re paying attention and noticing we’re still here teaching through a pandemic.”Mindy Iverson, Reading specialist at Steenrod Elementary School
Last year McDonald’s gave free meals to healthcare workers. Stoltz says he wishes he could hand-deliver meals to every teacher. But he encourages all of them to stop by any location this week for their free breakfast.
