Dunkin’ recently gave their customers an extra reason for getting their iced coffee fix during the hot days of May with the return of Dunkin’ Iced Coffee Day on Tuesday, May 23. On that day, guests made their coffee run count, with Dunkin’ donating $1 from every iced coffee sold at participating Dunkin’ locations to the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation.
The Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation donated 100 percent of funds raised on Dunkin’ Iced Coffee Day towards local children’s hospitals to help expand their impact in the community. In the Central Florida community, proceeds will go to Orlando Health to support kids battling illness in the community.
In 2022, Dunkin’ Iced Coffee Day raised $1.8 million for the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation, which was granted to 93 local children’s hospitals across the country. These grants funded child life programming that ranged from art, music and integrated therapy programs, including yoga and reiki, to electronic gaming equipment and specialized summer camps. These camps provide joyful experiences and environments for patients and their families. Funds also supported interactive play and learning equipment, adaptive equipment for kids with mobility issues, everyday essential kits for patients, wall murals, celebratory events for patient milestones, staffing of child life specialists and more.
