McDonald’s Malaysia is celebrating teachers and their contributions to society, by giving out free meal vouchers to teachers nationwide. In conjunction with Teachers’ Day, teachers can redeem their free meal vouchers at any McDonald’s restaurant near them. The effort is part of the quick-service restaurant’s efforts to feed and foster the communities.
Starting from 16 May until 30 June, the quick-service restaurant will be distributing a total of 500,000 meal vouchers to teachers nationwide. The free meal vouchers will benefit 500,000 teachers working in national and government-aided schools under the purview of the Ministry of Education. Using the free meal vouchers distributed, teachers can enjoy a free Spicy Sesame McChicken or Sausage McMuffin with Egg meal at any McDonald’s restaurant nationwide.
“Teachers play a pivotal role in motivating students to reach their highest potential. This is important because these students are the nation’s future leaders. As part of McDonald’s Malaysia’s commitment to giving back to the communities it operates in, we would like to express our gratitude to the everyday heroes of our country,” said Dato’ Azmir Jaafar, Managing Director and Local Operating Partner, McDonald’s Malaysia.
“McDonald’s Malaysia is honoured to treat our teachers to a free McDonald’s meal in conjunction with Teachers’ Day. We hope to do our part in motivating educators to continue guiding and nurturing the nation’s youths towards their highest potential,” said Dato’ Azmir Jaafar.
The distribution of the free meal vouchers is an extension of McDonald’s Malaysia’s efforts in honouring teachers.
