Keeping America Runnin’: Dunkin’ Raises a Cup to Healthcare Heroes at Vaccination Sites

Keeping America Runnin’: Dunkin’ Raises a Cup to Healthcare Heroes at Vaccination Sites

As our healthcare heroes continue to manage the COVID-19 crisis, here at Dunkin’, we are proud to support those on the frontlines who are volunteering and administering vaccines. We’re showing our appreciation for their tireless efforts by making coffee and donut donations at vaccination sites across the country.

Dunkin’, our franchisees, and the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation have worked together from the very beginning of the global health crisis to find meaningful ways to say “thank you” to everyone on the frontlines, including healthcare professionals, first responders, and now those working to administer vaccines.

“Here at Dunkin’, we appreciate and honor the heroic work and unwavering commitment healthcare professionals show every day,“ said Kari McHugh, Executive Director of the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation. “Their selfless sacrifices inspire all of us to come together to do everything we can to support our communities. We want people on the frontlines to know that we have their backs and they can count on Dunkin’ to help keep them running.”
