Published 11:53 am Tuesday, November 1, 2022


McDonald’s restaurants across Kentucky are supporting teachers by presenting a series of MAC Grants this fall. Each $500 MAC (Make Activities Count) Grant is designed to help local teachers fund new and exciting projects designed to engage their students in creative ways.

Recently, local McDonald’s owner/operator Abby Tamme presented a $500 check to Carrie Snow, a teacher at Boyle County High School. Snow will use the grant to help students create coffee mugs showcasing their artwork and then develop a business plan to sell their collection.

MAC Grants are designed to provide educators with the resources they need to create new and exciting learning experiences for their students. McDonald’s hopes this MAC Grant will allow for some unique projects and/or enhanced classroom experiences for students.

McDonald’s owner/operators are recognized in many communities throughout the country for entrepreneurship and their commitment to our local schools and communities. In an effort to continue that commitment, McDonald’s owner/operators in Kentucky will provide approximately 50 individual teachers with MAC Grants with the goal of helping build important personal career or business skills for students.

Students and those looking to continue their schooling or return to school can also enroll in McDonald’s signature education and career advising program Archways to Opportunity. The program provides eligible employees at participating restaurants an opportunity to earn college tuition assistance, a high school diploma, access free education and career advising services and learn English as a second language. So far in 2022, local McDonald’s restaurants across Kentucky have provided more than $90,000 in tuition assistance to help employees continue their education.
