M&M Meat Shops will host its 24th annual Charity BBQ Day May 12.

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., franchisees and volunteers will be flipping burgers and hot dogs at sites including 3189 King George Blvd. in South Surrey and 7218 King George Blvd. in Newton, in an effort to reach this year’s goal of raising $1.5 million for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC).

Supporters will receive a hamburger or hotdog, a drink and chips for a minimum donation of $3.

Through May 13, support for the cause may also be offered through M&M Meat Shops’ Star Program, which invites those interested to purchase a star in-store or online.
