Restaurant crew members of McDonald’s Malaysia continue on the company’s tradition of visiting old folks’ homes across the nation to spread the festive cheer ahead of Chinese New Year 2020. The visits to more than 60 old folks’ homes started from 13 January 2020 and will continue up till 8 February 2020.

This initiative is in its fourth year and involves crew members from more than 290 McDonald’s restaurants nationwide, with the aim of embracing the spirit of togetherness during this celebration that is rooted in tradition and family.
“At McDonald’s, we believe that Prosperity is really about giving abundantly what we can, beyond material wealth. In this case, spreading joy by spending quality time with the residents of the homes reflects the true meaning of Prosperity at McDonald’s. We are so happy to see the smiles on the residents’ faces and we sincerely hope that our efforts will make their Chinese New Year celebration even more meaningful and memorable, especially when ushering in a new decade,” said Azmir Jaafar, Managing Director and Local Operating Partner of McDonald’s Malaysia.

In preparation for the festive season, McDonald’s Malaysia employees cleaned and spruced up the homes and also brought meals for the residents of the homes.

“We are a big family at this home and having McDonald’s employees come over to prepare for Chinese New Year makes us really happy,” said Liu Xue Mei, one of the residents at Rumah Orang Tua Ampang.
Since the initiative was first introduced in 2017, McDonald’s Malaysia’s restaurant crew members have visited more than 250 old folks’ homes nationwide, and engaged with more than 10,000 residents of these homes.
Visits to the old folks’ homes reaffirm the company’s commitment in giving back to the communities it operates in. Additionally, the initiative emphasises the importance of care and respect towards the elderly.
