Vermont native and New England’s own Noah Kahan is coming home for the holidays in a special way this season. The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter teamed up with Dunkin’® for an intimate surprise for 30 patients at The University of Vermont Children’s Hospital with a special appearance last Friday, Dec. 15. Noah brought his best tunes to fill the patients’ hearts with joy, while Dunkin’ served sweet treats.
Young music fans gathered in the Children’s Specialty Center, which was decked out for the occasion with festive holiday décor, Dunkin’ swag and an array of Holiday donuts. As Noah performed, the sounds of his songs echoed throughout the halls of the hospital for patients and their families alike, spreading holiday cheer.
After his performance, Noah stuck around to meet patients, smile for selfies, and make this a moment to remember for all the children of UVM Children’s Hospital.
To sprinkle even more joy on this tremendous day, Dunkin’ fulfilled holiday wish lists, gifting over 100 young patients with presents from the hospital’s patient wish list program.
This heartwarming event was part of the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation’s commitment to bringing the simple joys of childhood to kids battling hunger or illness. Joy in Childhood programs, like this Noah Kahan “Home for the Holidays” visit, provide joyful experiences and environments for pediatric patients and their families.
Through this partnership, Dunkin’ is also honored to champion The Busyhead Project, Noah’s initiative to support organizations that provide mental health resources.
Since its inception in 2006, the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation has granted more than $49 million to national and local nonprofits. To learn more about the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation, visit www.bringjoy.org and follow on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.
