Allied Services Receives Record-Breaking Support from Mueller Family McDonalds

Members News

The Mueller family, representing 19 regional McDonald’s restaurants, recently presented a check in support of Team Allied Services and You. The annual charity campaign raising funds and awareness for children and adults with disabilities at Allied Services.

The donation represents proceeds from a month-long “Fry” fundraiser conducted during the month of September at Mueller Family McDonald’s restaurants in Lackawanna, Lehigh, Luzerne, Susquehanna, Wayne, and Wyoming Counties. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of every large fry was designated for Allied Services. 

This year, a new record was set for the annual fry fundraiser. In total, the initiative raised $37,482. In 2022, just over $30,000 was raised.

“We are thrilled to be able to support Allied and their mission of helping people in our community overcome physical challenges; specifically, children with disabilities or chronic illness. We hope the funds will make an impact on the lives of those who are in need of these services in our area,” commented Christina Mueller-Curran, McDonald’s Owner/Operator. 

“We are overwhelmed by the support of our communities. Our customers purchased about 150,000 orders of fries to make this possible! We could not have done it without their support and the support of our restaurant teams.”  

Upon receiving the donation, Allied Services President & CEO Atty. Bill Conaboy noted, “We are extremely grateful for the Mueller Family McDonald’s longtime support for Allied Services and the overall community.” 

“When we visited their South Scranton restaurant, celebrating their 50-year anniversary brought back memories of my youth growing up nearby, and it gives me great pride to recognize the Mueller Family’s decades of commitment of time, talent, and treasure – as Christina Mueller-Curran loyally serves on our Board of Directors.” 

Mueller Family McDonald’s are long-time supporters of Allied Services, and proud 2023 major sponsors of the Team Allied Services and You charity campaign. On November 5, local runner Krista Smith will represent McDonald’s and Allied Services in the TCS New York City Marathon. She joins a team of 60 other runners from around the United States and beyond who are running and raising funds for the non-profit health system.

The non-profit health system’s continuum of care for people with disabilities, chronic illness, and life-changing injuries includes physical rehabilitation, skilled nursing, pediatric services, behavioral health programs, residential programs, vocational training programs, and hospice and palliative care.
