By now, you've heard the Dunkin' slogan "America Runs on Dunkin." I've always added that we should be running to Dunkin' as well. People love their Dunkin' and they would rather be late to work than miss their cup of coffee.

However, they do more than just provide us with great-tasting coffee. They do many activities in the community including their Dunkin' Joy in Childhood to support various children's hospitals.

They have also done a "Go For The Gold" event to benefit Special Olympics New York. During the pandemic, they also donated to Southern Tier Front Line Healthcare workers and volunteers.

Another way, that they give back is through their Make-A-Wish campaign. Just in time for Halloween, Dunkin' has announced that the 2022 Star Donut charitable campaign has raised $100,000 for Make-A-Wish Central New York.

Make-A-Wish Campaign With Dunkin'

Make-A-Wish Central New York creates life-changing wishes for kids with critical illnesses in a 15-county region of New York State including the Southern Tier. In September, Dunkin' visitors that donated $1 to the Make-A-Wish campaign would get a Make-A-Wish Star Donut as a thank-you.

They celebrated with a Halloween party with local Wish Kids at the Dunkin' location at 1315 Upper Front Street in Binghamton. During the celebration, Dunkin’ gave a $100,000 donation to Make-A-Wish Central New York from the campaign.

Make-A-Wish Central New York was founded in 1985 and has granted over 2,000 wishes so far. They are poised to grant a record number of wishes this year because of everyone's support.

Dunkin' has been a part of this for the last 10 years and they've raised almost $750,000 for the local Make-A-Wish chapters throughout upstate New York. They aren't planning on slowing down any time soon

I'm proud to support Dunkin' and their participation in the Make-A-Wish campaign makes me even prouder.
