Ethiopia - McDonald's franchisee Geta Asfaw gives back to the community
D'Angelo McWilliams eyed the ranks of shiny new Huffy bicycles, searching for the one that would soon be his.
He didn't find it, but the Wyman Elementary School student, one of 330 fifth and sixth-graders to receive a bike at give-away arranged by McDonald's franchisee Geta Asfaw, wasn't disappointed.
"It feels good," said the 10year-old, who along with the other recipients got his bike during a later ceremony.
McWilliams and the rest of the students were nominated by their teachers and community organizations because of their academic achievement, good citizenship, financial need or chronic illness, said Asfaw, who owns six local McDonald's franchises.
Asfaw, who came to the United States to attend the University of Washington 35 years ago, said he organized the event to give back to the community.
