McDonald’s Kiddie Crew Workshop for underprivileged kids

McDonald’s Kiddie Crew Workshop

McDonald’s Kiddie Crew program has been running as the company’s flagship family program since 1992. It aims to promote children’s well-being through fun activities that help kids develop skills and gain new friends. It is a fun-filled 5-day learning workshop that consists of activities that will help harness their sense of discipline, hard work, teamwork, responsibility, and sharing.

On Giving Back

McDonald’s partnered with Davao Bloggers Society to have the kids from two chosen orphanages in Davao City – Padre Pio Children’s Home and Providence Home of St. Joseph experience the fun and exciting McDonald’s Kiddie Crew Regional Workshop on April 6, 2016 at the McDonald’s Bajada store.

Learning is Fun

Kids had a quick exposure in the three key areas of the store – the lobby, front counter, and drive thru – to at least have a grasp of the activities of a McDonald’s crew.

The most anticipated part (at least for me) of  the McDonald’s Kiddie Crew Workshop is the Cheeseburger making. Kids were ecstatic as they assemble their own all-time favorite Cheeseburger, putting in one ingredient after another and they were taught the proper technique of wrapping it. Of course, they had it for merienda at the end of the program.

Other activities include arts and craft to hone the imagination and artistic skills of the kids. The workshop was more memorable for the kids with the presence of Ronald McDonald who taught everybody in the room the signature Ronald dance.

It was indeed a fun-filled yet enriching afternoon for the kids and the kids at heart.
