ALBANY, New York – Dunkin’ is inviting Capital Region residents to enjoy a cool beverage while giving back to the community during its annual Iced Coffee Day. On Wednesday, May 22, $1 from every cup of Iced Coffee sold at participating Dunkin’ restaurants in the Capital Region will directly benefit the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med.
Since its inception in 2012, Iced Coffee Day has generated more than $213,000 for the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med. In addition, the Joy in Childhood Foundation previously granted $20,000 to support the hospital’s Child Life Program.
“Dunkin’ is thrilled to celebrate the return of Iced Coffee Day to the Capital Region,” said Dunkin’ Integrated Marketing Manager Eric Stensland. “We encourage Capital Region residents to welcome the warmer temperatures with a Dunkin’ Iced Coffee while also supporting a wonderful, local organization such as the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med.”
