Get a cup of good karma as Dunkin’ donates $1 from every iced coffee sold on Tuesday, May 23, helping to bring joy to kids in local hospitals through the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation

ALBANY, N.Y.– As temperatures rise, Dunkin’® is giving guests an extra reason for getting their iced coffee fix this May! America’s favorite coffee chain today announced the return of Dunkin’ Iced Coffee Day on Tuesday, May 23. On this special day, guests can make their coffee run count, as $1 from every iced coffee* sold at participating Dunkin’ locations will be donated to the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation®.

The Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation, created to bring the simple joys of childhood to kids battling hunger or illness, is dedicated to making a difference. With 100 percent of funds raised on Dunkin’ Iced Coffee Day going towards local children’s hospitals nationwide, the money raised in each community will help these hospitals expand their impact, bolstered by the support of the Foundation.

In Albany, local proceeds will benefit the Bernard and Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center to support kids battling illness in the Capital Region.

“Our commitment to giving back is stronger than ever, as countless children across the country face illnesses that no child should endure. That’s why the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation and Dunkin’ teamed up again this year to create our own Iced Coffee Day, pouring our hearts into every cup and bringing joy to kids in need,” said Victor Carvalho, Dunkin’ Franchisee and Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation. “Guests who purchase an iced coffee on May 23 will be sipping with a purpose and supporting kids in their own communities. We look forward to helping our guests bring a little extra joy with America’s hardest working iced coffee!”

To remind iced coffee fans to get a cup of good karma on Dunkin’ Iced Coffee Day, the brand will illuminate the night sky in select cities with Dunkin’s signature pink and orange hues on Monday, May 22. Iconic landmarks from coast to coast, including the gateway to Albany International Airport and the H. Carl McCall SUNY Building, will showcase the Dunkin’ colors, reminding guests to make their coffee count on May 23.

In 2022, Dunkin’ Iced Coffee Day raised $1.8 million for the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation, which was granted to 93 local children’s hospitals across the country. In Albany, the Bernard and Millie Duker Children’s Hospital received a $20,000 grant to support its Child Life program. Child Life offers a variety of alternative forms of therapy to help relieve pain and reduce stress and anxiety, often through the joy of play.
