DUNKIN’ DONUTS SUPPORTS WESTERN NEW YORK ANIMALS WITH SPECIAL TREAT

For each $1 donation to the SPCA, Dunkin’ Donuts guests will receive a specialty donut as a thank you

BUFFALO, New York; – Dunkin’ Donuts, America’s all-day, every-day stop for coffee and baked goods, will offer Western New York residents a reward for good behavior when they show support for the second-oldest humane society in the country.

Beginning today through December 5, all participating Dunkin’ Donuts locations throughout the greater Buffalo area will offer guests a special heart-shaped donut as a thank you when they make a $1 donation to the SPCA Serving Erie County at participating restaurants.

The initiative marks the fourth year in a row that Dunkin’ Donuts has partnered with the SPCA Serving Erie County. The program has raised more than $30,000 since its inception in 2011.

“Dunkin’ Donuts is honored to support the SPCA Serving Erie County, which provides high quality care and educational programs to support fair and humane treatment of animals in Western New York,” said Dunkin’ Donuts Field Marketing Manager Tammy Monks. “I encourage residents throughout the greater Buffalo area to enjoy a special treat at Dunkin’ Donuts while supporting the SPCA Serving Erie County. I am confident our loyal guests will enthusiastically raise funds for such a vital organization.”

The specialty donut is a yeast shell filled with cream and topped with blue frosting in honor of the SPCA Serving Erie County.

The availability of the heart-shaped donuts leads up to the 11th annual Radiothon to benefit the SPCA Serving Erie County, which will return to the airwaves on December 3 through 6. During the four-day event, local radio stations WBEN 930 AM and 107.7 FM and Star 102.5 FM will give a voice to the animals through a live broadcast from the SPCA’s headquarters in Tonawanda, NY, to raise funds for the SPCA Serving Erie County and its services.
