Dunkin Iced Coffee Day Raises $2.1 Million for Kids

Dunkin Iced Coffee Day! Dunkin’ and the Joy in Childhood Foundation announced that this year’s Iced Coffee Day raised a record $2.1 million. The annual event dedicated to helping children fighting hunger or disease took place on June 20, the first day of summer.

The greatest year ever

For the past three years, Dunkin’ franchisees have donated $1 for every iced coffee sold on Iced Coffee Day. This year, customers across the country showed tremendous support, making it the most successful fundraiser to date, surpassing last year’s $1.7 million.

Supporting local pediatric hospitals

All proceeds from Iced Coffee Day are distributed to local children’s hospitals. These clinics use the grants to support children’s social program needs, including summer camps for children with cancer and other illnesses, medically safe events like carnival bowling, and what etc. Clinics seek support for art, music, dance therapy, family and youth furniture, . and emotional representations. These programs provide comfort and joy to children and their families during stressful times.
