The McDonald’s restaurant at 6950 Mesa Ridge Parkway in Fountain will host “McTeachers Night” from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday.
Students and parents from Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8, as well as the community, are invited to support the Fountain Police Department Explorers Program.
A portion of the restaurant's business during that time period will be donated to the Fountain Explorer Program.
Explorers will be taking orders, cleaning tables and interacting with diners.
The program started in 2015, with about 12 Explorers at any given time participating. Since the program’s inception, the Explorers have logged over 1,000 community service hours.
The Explorers assist the community with various duties such as working at the soup kitchen, security details at the high school football games and working other city events, like the Fall Festival.
