Big Red Friday


Join us September 4, 2020 for Big Red Friday! From 6:00-9:00 am that morning, Husker flags will be sold at 80 McDonald’s stores across Nebraska and Southwest Iowa for $5 each, with proceeds benefiting the families at RMHC in Omaha. We’re partnering with McDonald’s MAC, Inc. Co-op and Husker IMG Sports Marketing for what is sure to be an exciting event.

Stay tuned for upcoming details about the 2020 Big Red Friday flag reveal!

New in 2020 – Can’t make it to a McDonald’s location on Big Red Friday? No worries! This year, you will be able to purchase a flag on the Nebraska Cornhuskers Fanatics site! Details coming soon.

Frequently Asked Volunteer Questions About Big Red Friday

RMHC provides a home-away-from-home for critically ill children and their families. During this unprecedented year, we ask that you please wear a mask while volunteering at McDonald's stores.
Volunteers will be outside, selling the flags to customers before drivers order at the drive through. Feel free to open up a flag and wave it around to catch people's attention!
If you experience bad weather on the morning of Big Red Friday, you are welcome to go inside the stores to sell the flags to customers.
Huskers gear! Go Big Red!
At 6:00 am, arrive at your registered McDonald's, and go in to let the manager know you are there to volunteer for Big Red Friday. They will hand you a box of flags and a red bucket to collect cash.
It is a $5 donation for a limited-edition Husker flag!
There will be a red bucket for you to collect cash from customers with the boxes of flags at each restaurant. If a customer would like to buy a flag using a credit card, they are welcome to add a flag to their breakfast order. The McDonald's employees can ring them up at the cash register.
Nope! Sell those flags! All proceeds come back to help the families staying at RMHC, so we would love to sell out.
After you sell out (or once it hits 9:00 am), please return the red bucket with the cash, and any left over flags to the manager inside the McDonald's restaurant. They will deliver it to RMHC.
