In honor of National Nurses Day next week, Dunkin' is showing its appreciation and support for healthcare heroes’ tireless efforts to keep us all healthy and safe, announcing a special in-store offer and a $200,000 grant to support healthcare workers experiencing trauma, and continuing various initiatives to give back to healthcare workers across the country.
On National Nurses Day, May 6th, Dunkin’ is offering a free medium hot or iced coffee and a free donut – no purchase necessary – to all healthcare workers who visit participating Dunkin’ restaurants nationwide, while supplies last (excludes Cold Brew and Nitro Cold Brew, Limit 1 per guest. Not valid on mobile orders).
In honor of Pay It Forward Day (April 28th), the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation is providing critical support to nurses and healthcare workers experiencing trauma due to COVID-19, announcing a $200,000 grant to First Descents, the global leader in adventure-based healing. Through this grant, First Descents will create “Hero Recharge,” a first-of-its-kind initiative designed to leverage adventure-based wellness programs to help healthcare professionals facing significant traumatic stress by improving their psychosocial health, nurturing supportive peer relationships, and better positioning them to carry out their important work.
In addition, Dunkin’ will continue to bring food trucks and make product deliveries to hospitals, emergency sites, and first responders throughout the country, particularly in markets where the impact of COVID-19 has hit the hardest. Through funding provided by Dunkin’, its franchisees, and its Foundation, hundreds of thousands of complimentary cups of coffee, donuts, Keurig® K-Cup pods, and Dunkin’ gift cards were delivered to more than 300 hospitals and emergency sites, including Boston Children’s Hospital, Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, Maine Medical Center, Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, among others.
