ALBANY, New York – Dunkin’ Donuts is inviting Capital Region residents to get ready for summer with the return of “Iced Coffee Day.” On Wednesday, May 23, $1 from every cup of Iced Coffee sold at participating Dunkin’ Donuts 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 $183,000 for the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med. In addition, the Dunkin’ Donuts Joy in Childhood Foundation previously granted $20,000 to support the hospital’s Child Life Program.

 “Dunkin’ Donuts is thrilled to celebrate the return of Iced Coffee Day to the Capital Region,” said Dunkin’ Donuts 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.”

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.

“Our team of medical specialists depends on the generosity of community partners to continue delivering the highest quality care in the region,” said David A. Clark, M.D., director of the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med.  “We thank Dunkin’ Donuts for its dedicated support to our patients and their families.”
