How Dunkin’ is Serving Sweet Thanks to Veterans and Active Duty Military This Veterans Day

This Veterans Day, Dunkin’ is once again giving a sweet salute to all those who serve by offering a free donut to veterans and active duty military on Monday, November 11th*.  This is part of the brand’s ongoing efforts to show its support and appreciation for those who serve.

In honor of this day, we are shining the spotlight on George Hart, retired U.S. Army Major and Dunkin’ franchisee, this Veterans Day in the latest Dunkin’ Doc, Dunkin’s digital series profiling standout Dunkin’ fans, employees and franchise owners. The video profiles George and his incredible goal of putting a Dunkin’ on every military base in the country. With 11 Dunkin’ locations open now and six more set to open within the next year, George is on a mission to hit all U.S. bases offering a good environment, a strong community, and the consistency of “a great cup of coffee”. This Dunkin’ Doc shares George’s journey, and how Dunkin’ has been the inspiration to build such a meaningful community on-bases across the country. Check out the Dunkin’ Doc below:

In addition to a free donut, the first 50 veterans and active military at participating Dunkin’ restaurants on Veterans Day will also receive a thank you card written by members of the A Million Thanks community. A Million Thanks is a nonprofit organization that supports active, reserve, and veteran military by sending millions of letters of thanks and encouragement directly to service members. Since its inception in 2004, A Million Thanks has delivered over 9.8 million cards to U.S. troops stationed around the world.

Through Dunkin’s partnership with A Million Thanks, fans will have the opportunity to submit custom messages by digital cards featuring words of thanks and encouragement to active duty military on Dunkin’s Instagram page on Veterans Day. Favorite messages will be selected by Dunkin’ and printed and mailed to active military members through A Million Thanks.
