ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Dunkin’ Donuts, America’s favorite all-day, every day stop for coffee and baked goods, today announced it will collect donations in its Rochester-area restaurants to support YMCA of Greater Rochester children’s programming and summer camps.
Donations will be collected June 5 through June 19 at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants throughout the greater Rochester area. Guests who elect to contribute $1 to the YMCA will receive a paper Dunkin’ Donuts coffee icon bearing the YMCA logo, which may be displayed with the donor’s name on the wall of participating restaurants.
“Dunkin’ Donuts is honored to support the important programming of the YMCA of Greater Rochester,” said Dunkin’ Donuts Field Marketing Manager Alisa LaPlante. “The YMCA ensures that every child has access to a safe and healthy environment for them to learn and grow while they are not in school.
