55 River Ave.
FUND-RAISER FOR NERA
North Eugene Retired (teachers) Association
McTeacher’s Night at McDonald’s
WHERE? MCDONALD’S NEAR SILVER LANE AND RIVER ROAD (close to NEHS)
WHEN? Wednesday, March 7, 2012 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
This year a special emphasis by the NERA board has been given to North homeless students. A portion of our yearly budget is going toward a special fund for students who live during the week-end, holiday or summer break wondering if they will go to sleep tonight hungry. Out of 997 students at North, 537 of them qualify for free and reduced meals. While starting out as a small effort to help alleviate a major problem, providing food for these students is becoming a major effort, thanks to the generosity of several restaurants in the area.
One of the restaurants, McDonald’s, is offering to give us 50% of the profits earned during the McTeacher night fund-raiser. We hope to widely advertise this event to maximize our portion. In addition to the money earned McDonald’s will sell meal coupons to NERA at a 50% discount.
On behalf of the board I hope to see you at this event at McDonald’s on River Avenue March 7, 2012. – Linda Preston
See You March 7th !!
