Benefiting Austin Street Shelter.

McDonald's Week is a time for the entire school to rally behind one unified theme and give back to the community. It's a lot of fun for a good cause!

From the Co-Chairs:

McDonald’s Week, the annual fundraiser for Austin Street Center, will take place November 12–16. Austin Street Center is a South Dallas charity that does incredible work to support and educate the homeless community, and this yearly event has been raising funds for their cause for over 25 years. Hosted by the Junior Class from 7:15-7:50 a.m., McDonald’s Week will have themed activities and merchandise for sale daily. On Friday in US Assembly, we will draw for the raffle.

There are several ways for families to contribute to the Austin Street cause. Themed t-shirts and wristbands will be for sale both at McDonald’s in the mornings and at St. Mark’s throughout the week. There will be special dinner nights during McDonald’s Week, at which a portion of profits from certain restaurants will go directly to Austin Street Center. Lastly, through the entire week, Sports Clips will donate $5 per haircut and Nothing Bundt Cakes will donate 15% of their profits. Be sure to mention you are from St. Mark’s!

This will be an awesome week with many fun aspects, but our main goal is to get the St. Mark’s community truly engaged in supporting Austin Street Center. The Class of 2020 has put in a huge effort to make this a great McDonald’s Week, we are looking forward to it!

Thank you!


The junior class has organized games and activities to liven up the fundraising campaign.
