It also means embracing the simple joys of spending time with friends and family, as well as carrying out acts of kindness for others. We hope that our effort here will help to fill the homes with warmth and joy while spreading the festive spirit especially since Chinese New Year is just around the corner,” said Azmir Jaafar, Managing Director and Local Operating Partner of McDonald’s Malaysia.
The first visit started a few days ago on 21 January and will continue on until 20 February 2019. During these visits, McDonald’s employees representing more than 270 McDonald’s restaurants together with volunteers from the public will spend a joyous time with the residents of various homes across the nation and bring cheer to them through light entertainment activities. McDonald’s employees and volunteers from the public will also be participating in the cultural Prosperity Toss or Yee Sang with residents of the homes.
