AUSTIN (Talk1370.com) — If you’re looking for options for lunch this Good Friday, your choice could benefit the families of first responders across Central Texas - just by eating at area McDonald’s restaurants.

The South Central Texas McDonald’s Co-op will host its 18th annual Good Friday Fundraiser from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Friday. A percentage of sales from all participating restaurants will be donated to the 100 Club of Central Texas and other 100 Clubs.

The mission of the 100 Club of Central Texas is to support families of first responders who are killed or critically injured in the line of duty.

It’s a long-standing commitment for McDonald’s, which has been holding its Good Friday Fundraiser since 2001. "McDonald’s in South Central Texas is a proud, honored supporter of local 100 Clubs and greatly appreciates what they do for our communities, and the families of fallen and critically injured first responders," said Cindi Ferguson, a McDonald’s Owner/Operator. "The annual fundraiser offers the community a way to give back to those who put their lives on the line for our safety."

Officers from several area agencies, including Austin Police, Austin Fire, the Travis County Sheriff’s Office, and Round Rock Police will be on hand at restaurants across the area to take part in the fundraiser and interact with customers.

"The 100 Clubs of Central Texas deeply appreciates McDonald’s for their continued support of our organization. We encourage everyone to join us at your local McDonald’s for lunch on Good Friday to show support for these vital members of our community," added 100 Club of Central Texas Board Chair Billy Bryan.
