Battleship gets more than $29,000 in donations
LELAND, NC (WWAY) — The USS North Carolina got a more than $4,000 donation from the Big Macs for the Battleship promotion Friday morning.
The promotion is a combined effort of 32 area McDonald’s.
But, the generosity did not end there. Dennis W. Anderson, with McDonald’s gave personal gift to the ship of $25,000.
A total of $29,656 is now going toward the restoration fund.
Captain Terry Bragg, Executive Director of the Battleship says McDonald’s has been a true partner in supporting the generation campaign.
“They have helped us with advertising and marketing, as well as a cash gift. That shows that our values of supporting those who gave their service and commitment, as well as the 40,000 school kids who visit the Battleship North Carolina, is important,” said Bragg.
Bragg says the USS North Carolina is known as the people’s ship which is why it is so important for everyone to contribute to the project.
