With Veterans Day approaching, Dunkin’ Donuts and the USO have brewed up an easy and meaningful way to show support for US troops. We’re making it easy - and delicious - to Support America’s Heroes with America’s Favorite Coffee!
Beginning today and continuing through November 14, for every purchase of two one-pound bags of Dunkin’ Donuts’ packaged coffee from any participating restaurant or online at www.DunkinDonuts.com, Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees will donate an additional one-pound bag to the USO. Over the two-week program, Dunkin’ Donuts will donate up to 100,000 pounds of coffee, which will be delivered to USO centers that serve millions of troops and their families!
We want to extend a huge thanks to Dunkin’ Brands for showing their support. Get your two bags of coffee today, and say thanks on Facebook and Twitter (be sure to use the hashtag #DDthx). You can also leave a message of support on our USO Wall of Thanks.
In addition, the Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation, whose mission is to serve the basic needs of our communities through food for the hungry, safety and children’s health, today also announced an $82,500 grant to support the USO’s mission to provide morale, welfare and recreation-type services to troops and their families.
“Dunkin’ Donuts has a long history of honoring America’s servicemen and women, and we are proud to continue our tradition of supporting the troops through our new partnership with the USO,” said John Costello, Chief Global Customer and Marketing Officer at Dunkin’ Brands. “By donating a pound of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee every time our guests purchase two pounds in our restaurants or online, we are making it easy for people to help keep our troops running, while joining us in celebrating the men and women who give selflessly to our country.”
Dunkin’ Donuts has donated more than 150,000 pounds of coffee to troops deployed overseas since May 2003. The company holds a monthly lottery 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.
