The America’s Super-Soldiers essay contest is inspired by Marvel® Studios’ Captain America: The First Avenger. Arriving in movie theaters on July 22, action hero Captain America is created as part of the secret “Super-Soldiers” project. Through the America’s Super-Soldiers essay content, Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins are excited for the opportunity to honor America’s real unsung heroes whose service has had a significant impact in local communities throughout our country.
Dunkin’ Donuts has a long history of honoring America’s service men and women, and has donated more than 175,000 pounds of coffee to troops deployed overseas since May 2003. The company holds a monthly drawing to randomly select at least 50 United States military members to receive one case of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee. During the holiday season, Dunkin’ Brands’ corporate employees also send additional pounds of coffee to the troops.
