The Purdue University North Central Alumni Association will benefit from a Give Back Day hosted by the Westville McDonald’s, located at 800 North Flynn Road, on Nov. 4 from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. The PNC Alumni Association will receive 50 percent of the purchase price of every latte or lemonade sold. If there are more than 500 purchases, McDonald’s will donate $1,000 to the PNC Alumni Association.
“Pounce,” the PNC Mascot, will make an appearance from 8 to 9:30 a.m. in the McDonald’s lobby.
Marie Foster, director of advancement said that “This generous partnership with McDonald’s of La Porte County not only benefits the PNC Alumni Association, it allows us to build awareness for the services we provide to our 13,000 active alumni.”
“McDonald’s of La Porte County does give back events because when people actively participate in community events they find themselves becoming a part of that community,” said Sam Lubeznik one of the McDonald’s owners. “It helps to change Westville from a dot on a map to a place that you consider home. Communities, like homes, need maintenance from time to time. As a member of the La Porte County community, some of that maintenance is my responsibility. The goal is to find ways to give so that years from now we can all look to see how the community has grown and know that all of us were a part of that.”
The PNC Alumni Association is dedicated to keeping alumni and current students of PNC involved and connected with the university. Its mission is to promote the growth of Purdue University North Central and to encourage the interest of the alumni and local citizens.
