BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Dunkin’ of Birmingham presented Children’s of Alabama with a check for $5,000 through the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation Tuesday.
Dunkin’ Iced Coffee Day in May collectively raised $1.8 Million to support kids in children’s hospitals throughout the country. Birmingham gets $5,000 of the total money raised.
On May 25, $1 from every iced coffee purchased at participating Dunkin’ restaurants nationwide supported the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation’s mission to bring joy to kids battling illness.
“When children are faced with extreme hardship like battling a severe illness, it robs them of the joys of childhood,” said Krunal Patel, Dunkin’ Franchisee. “It was amazing to see the outpouring of support from our guests to help make a difference for these kids. As Dunkin’ franchisees, it is so important for us to give back to the communities we serve and show them we are here to keep them running beyond their daily Dunkin’ run. We are thrilled to support our local hospital partners throughout the country and help them create joyful experiences that allow their patients to still be kids.”
