SYRACUSE, NY – Dunkin’ Donuts today celebrated the results of its recent Iced Coffee Day campaign with a donation of $30,792 to Food Bank of Central New York.
During the one day event on May 23, Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees donated $1 from every cup of iced coffee sold at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in central New York to the Food Bank. Iced Coffee Day has generated more than $150,000 for Central New York charities since 2012. “Dunkin’ Donuts is thrilled to continue to support Food Bank of Central New York through our annual Iced Coffee Day program,” said Eric Stensland, Integrated Marketing Manager, Dunkin’ Donuts. “This $30,000 donation is a direct reflection of the community support engendered by the Food Bank, an organization so vital to families in need. I would like to thank all of our guests who joined us on Iced Coffee Day to help raise funds for Food Bank of Central New York.”
Food Bank of Central New York serves as the primary food supplier to the emergency food network, comprised of 364 partner agencies, within an eleven county service area across central and northern New York. The Food Bank will provide more than 15 million pounds of nutritious food this year – the equivalent of 12.5 million meals – to hungry families, children, and seniors.
“Food Bank looks forward to this event and appreciates the support from Dunkin Donuts and the community,” said Kathleen Stress, Executive Director, Food Bank of Central New York. “Every family deserves wholesome food and through this community initiative we are able to provide additional meals at a vital time when children will be out of school and families will be seeking additional food resources.”
