"We can confirm that the local owner-operators of the McDonald’s restaurants in Mr. Ramsey’s neighborhood have connected with him and offered complimentary McDonald’s food for the next year," spokesperson Heidi Barker revealed to Business Insider in an email.
The fast food chain also made a $10,000 donation to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in the name of the victims.
Just after Ramsey made national news for his memorable 911 call to report he had found missing Cleveland woman Amanda Berry, McDonald's tweeted at him:
Ramsey mentioned in his 911 call that he had just gone to McDonald's.
But Barker clarified that McDonald's reached out to Ramsey "directly and privately" out of respect for the tragedy.
