ALBANY, NY; Dunkin’ today announced the results of its recent Iced Coffee Day campaign with a donation of $32,625 to the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med.

The donation is the result of the Dunkin’® Iced Coffee Day fundraising campaign, which took place on May 26. During the one-day charitable event, participating Dunkin’ franchisees in the Capital Region donated one dollar for every Iced Coffee sold to the children’s hospital.

“We are excited to announce the results of our Iced Coffee Day campaign and contribute to the tremendous efforts of the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med. Dunkin’ is thrilled to continue to support this organization, which is so vital to the community,” said Dunkin’ Field Marketing Manager Eric Stensland. “I would like to thank all of our guests who joined us on Iced Coffee Day to help raise these important funds for the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med.”

Since its inception in 2012, Iced Coffee Day has generated more than $307,000 for the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med. Community support through events like Iced Coffee Day funds critical treatments, health care services and pediatric medical equipment such as the demonstration dolls the Child Life staff use to explain procedures to pediatric patients.

“Our team of medical specialists depends on the generosity of community partners so they can continue delivering the highest quality care to the children of our region,” said Barbara Ostrov, M.D., chief of service of the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med.  “We thank Dunkin’ for its years of dedicated support to our patients and their families.”

The Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med is a 125-bed facility devoted exclusively to the medical needs of infants, children and adolescents and is the referral center for all seriously ill and injured children from 25 counties in upstate New York and western New England.  It is staffed by 140 physicians trained in 40 subspecialties and more than 400 pediatric nurses, therapists, social workers and child life specialists.
