LOCAL HAMBURGER HELPER: MCDONALD'S LENDS A HAND

 LOS ANGELES, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- McDonald's, working with the local American Red Cross and community fire departments throughout Southern California, has donated more than 8,000 hot meals to firefighters, emergency workers and victims of communities affected by the wildfires.
 Wildfires have claimed 554 homes and more than 184,000 acres, displacing thousands of people while placing others directly in harm's way. Thousand Oaks, Altadena, Malibu and Laguna are just a few of the communities devastated by the fires.
 In the spirit of "neighbor helping neighbor," many local McDonald's restaurants located in the affected areas have donated their support providing good, hot food quickly. "We are just doing what good citizens do -- offering a helping hand where we can," stated Bob Pernecky, president of McDonald's Operator's Association of Southern California. "We will continue to offer our assistance as long as there is a need."
 McDonald's has been a fixture in Southern California for over 36 years.
