(New work from W+K New York)

After a weekend that saw 31 more known deaths and 1,570 new known cases of the coronavirus COVID-19 reported in Illinois — including the loss of an infant and the state’s largest single-day increase in new cases, Chicago-based McDonald’s is sending out a message of hope to its customers.

McDonald’s wants to assure its customers that the QSR is still around and available to feed people with its drive-through and delivery options while everyone is distancing and staying at home. The new work comes from agency Wieden+Kennedy, New York. Watch below:
