 LOCAL MCDONALD'S RESTAURANTS SEND AID TO ANDREW VICTIMS IN FLORIDA
 PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- McDonald's(R) restaurants of southeastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and Delaware recently announced a $10,000 donation to McDonald's restaurants of Southern Florida to help employees left homeless, hungry and jobless in the wake of Hurricane Andrew.
 "Seven McDonald's restaurants were destroyed during the hurricane, affecting crew members, managers, owner/operators and their families," said Chris Gabriel, president, McDonald's Owner/Operator Association, Philadelphia region. "In total, more than 500 McDonald's families have been affected by this tragedy."
 "It may take a long time for the people of South Florida to forget the tragedy of Hurricane Andrew, but we will always remember the kindness and concern of many people who have opened their hearts to help," said Mike Nash, licensing manager/domestic, McDonald's Corporation, South Florida region.
 In addition to the recent donation, McDonald's Philadelphia regional office sent its 50-foot mobile restaurant to Homestead, Fla., last week to provide free hamburgers, fries and drinks to more than 125,000 members of the community.
 "The Delaware Valley McDonald's family is reaching out to help our Florida McDonald's family during this time of crisis," added Gabriel. "We're hoping that our contributions will assist these folks in getting their lives back in order."
 The $10,000 donation by local McDonald's owner/operators may be the first of several to assist victims of Hurricane Andrew.
 There are 223 McDonald's restaurants in the Delaware Valley, serving a third of a million people each day. McDonald's is the world's leading quick-service restaurant organization, with more than 12,500 restaurants in 62 countries around the world. Approximately 80 percent of McDonald's restaurant businesses are locally owned and operated by independent entrepreneurs.
