Each year during the holidays, our local franchisees and employees aim to bring joy to the communities they serve. Whether it’s supporting food banks, raising donations, giving gifts to those in need, or simply delighting guests, our local Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants do what they can to give back. Each week this holiday season, we are highlighting the franchisees and employees who go above and beyond to bring joy to their communities.
The holidays are a wonderful season of giving and provide an opportunity to say thank you to our community. But like many Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees and their employees, our team here in Naples, FL is passionate about giving back 365 days of the year.
All year long, we know that coffee and donuts are a great way to bring joy and support our neighborhood community programs. From celebrations honoring local heroes to charity events to high school graduations, we have donated hundreds of donuts and coffee to support the communities we serve. To name a few, we’ve supported the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, JDRF One Walk, Safe & Healthy Children Coalition for Collier County, Naples 9/11 Memorial Stair Run and more.
Bringing joy is truly a passion for us, so beyond the coffee and donuts, we also had several fundraisers and programs throughout the year. In the summer, we hosted an in-store fundraiser to raise $7,500 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s Summer Camp program. This fall, we held a backpack drive throughout our Dunkin' Donuts restaurants, collecting over 1,000 items for the Friends of Foster Children Forever Back to School Drive.
This past holiday season, we were able to bring 100 children to a local Dick’s Sporting Goods, where they received a $100 gift card to spend for their holiday gifts. And throughout the year, we partnered with the Collier County Sheriff’s Office to host “Coffee with a Cop” meet and greet opportunities for our community.
We aim to support not just our valued customers, but our hard-working employees as well. That’s why we now offer free English classes for our Spanish-speaking employees to give them the tools and resources they need to succeed.
All of these efforts throughout the year are our way of giving back and saying thank you to our customers, employees and communities. As the season of giving comes to a close, we encourage you to remember to join us in bringing joy all year long!
