Kindness and consideration is something to be admired especially when helping firefighters who have spent hours in subzero weather battling a local fire. So when McDonalds Manager Heather Levia saw a way to help them by donating food and paying for it out of her own pocket for them, being fired never occurred to her. But that is exactly what followed for the New York former manager at an Olean, NY McDonalds, according to Fox 44.
Total disbelief is one of the motions that had to have come across the young womans face when her immediate bosses at the fast food restaurant sent her packing for her kind gesture. All she did was take their order of 25 breakfast sandwiches and hash browns, and then promptly took $83 out and pay for their order herself.This selfless act was not welcomed by management and instead she was treated with utter contempt and even claimed that that was not the policy of the restaurant or of the corporation. This of course seemed a bit odd to Levia, since, she claims they regularly give free meals to police officers who stop by.

I’m guessing there’s more to the story.
I respect those who honor our police and firefighters. McDonalds should make this right.
I respect McDonald’s right to run their business as they see fit.
“Fire department pensions near $90,000, data show”
Members of the city’s Bravest who retired in 2010 received an average pension of $89,177, according to figures released Thursday by a conservative think tank.
Fired?! You fire an american beauty like her over a little power struggle? This girl has the looks and a kind heart. This is the sort of eight year employee who should be in public relations not on unemployment. Think outside of the burger box, Mc D.
If she paid for the food herself, what business is it of McDonalds?
I hope the managers are publicly humiliated over this.
“Im guessing theres more to the story.”
I agree. Something must be missing here.
If the story is indeed fact, what grounds did they have to fire her?
I agree....gotta be more to it or she will be receiving a nice settlement int he near future.
Yeh — old news:
and she ain’t no Joan of Arc either.
I agree with you...but if the story is true...the decisions they made will cost the dearly in the form of a huge settlement.....McDonald’s has shareholders...not sure if they will agree with you.
days gone by i was a swing manager at a mickey dees and every three or four days (my) regulars got it for free
put it on the managers waste sheet
get a plate throw on pie add some soft serve ice cream on top
other people would ask i dint see that on the menu
i didnt see you yesterday either
the owner caught me one day suggesting ( to a customer) their hot mustard sauce on a Mc Chicken. He pulled me into the office and said that int a menu item. But I like the way you think.
glad to see corporate america has got the look that kills...themselves
nice gesture but I want to tell her that those firemen make several times more than she makes and they should have refused the free food.....
“I respect McDonalds right to run their business as they see fit.”
Me too, and also the right of people who think it was a low life move to spread the story so people know not to do business with them.
have you ever heard of Jesus Christ
Back in high school, I ended up as crew chief (I don’t know why, but I always thought I was the only kid who didn;t smoke pot during breaks) and you are right, the waste sheet for one night is enough to feed an orphanage. McD’s lost an effective manager and she didn’t belong in that ungrateful environment.
Not buying her story.
I hope she lands a better job.
live in her world that day
post a vanity
Not buying her story?
Take a look at some other photos of Heather.
You might be moved to give her the benefit of the doubt.
