South Florida students dine with police officers, Ronald McDonald

MIAMI (WSVN) - A few South Florida students are enjoying a lunch date with Ronald McDonald and police.

The lunch is part of the Do The Right Thing initiative where kids in student-at-risk areas get rewarded for their good behavior and good deeds.

Ronald McDonald led the first ever Dine with an Officer event at the McDonald’s near Biscayne Boulevard and Northeast 82nd Street, in Miami.

He packed games, prizes and happy meals for everyone. “We’re here with the Do The Right Thing organization, teaming up with McDonald’s and the Miami-Dade Police Department, having lots of fun and encouraging doing the right thing,” said Ronald McDonald.

“It’s kind of rewarding because just by doing the right thing, I get to see police officers and come to McDonalds,” said North Miami Elementary School Student, Tatiana Luc.

The students were awarded with prizes, T-shirts and personalized congratulatory letters signed by Miami Police Chief Rodolfo Llanes and Miami-Dade Schools Police Chief Ian Moffett.
