Today Is Iced Coffee Day At Dunkin Donuts

Visit a local Dunkin' Donuts for a reduced-price iced coffee and support Hasbro Children's Hospital.


Head to Dunkin' Donuts today for a cheap coffee while supporting a good cause.

Dunkin’ Donuts has declared today Iced Coffee Day in Rhode Island and Bristol County, Massachusetts. All day, participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants will offer guests a medium (24 oz.) cup of iced coffee for $1. Additionally, a small iced coffee will be reduced to 75 cents and a large will be reduced to $1.50. The proceeds from Iced Coffee sales that day will be donated to The Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation to benefit Hasbro Children’s Hospital.

There are four Dunkin' Donuts in Woonsocket for customers to choose — 1431 Diamond Hill Road, 711 Front St.,  1338 Park Ave and 308 Cumberland St.

"We are thrilled to celebrate the unofficial start of summer with the return of Iced Coffee Day for Hasbro Children’s Hospital for the third year," said Joe Prazeres, Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee, in a press release. "Thanks to our loyal and generous guests, this annual promotion has generated nearly $350,000 for the organization, and we are excited to continue to raise money for a wonderful cause."

The money such fundraisers generates is critical to supporting the hospital, according to Dr. Robert B. Klein, pediatrician-in-chief of Hasbro Children’s Hospital

“A compassionate and comfortable experience in a healing environment is what we strive to provide for each of our young patients,” Klein said. “Dunkin’ Donuts supports our vision and, with this wonderful event, will help us to continue to provide the excellent care our community deserves.”

it feels refreshing to contribute to a good worthwhile cause, instead throwing our money at so called needy for food or shelter. Ive never seen one of them without cigarettes. let me try to do my math. 30 packs a month at about, at least 6.50 per pack. this is too hard for me. I cant multiply that number, can someone help.

You're making quite a few assumptions there. Could that be because you've only driven by the homeless shelters and public housing developments and seen the smokers outside? I'll admit that it frustrates me too when I see that cigarettes sometimes come before things like food or shelter but there is something to be said for the fact that nicotine is addictive. Imagine being homeless, hungry, AND in withdrawal. Also, there is something to be said for the cycle of poverty and lack of access to things that many people take for granted like financial literacy and job training/search help. There are truly needy people out there, regardless to how or why they got where they are.

ERIN; i would not have made these statements without absolute knowledge of what im talking about. I have been around this situation for 26 years.fortunately i do not have to be politically correct. I do not have to answer to anyone. I can speak with knowledge and speak candidly about this subject. I would challenge anyone ,ANYONE on an open public forum any day, anywhere. there is no one that would attempt. I dare anyone. the absolute truth would come out. it would make people sick.you are correct about truly needy people, they 99% of the time are the ones not getting the help! I truly thank you erin for your comment and your concern. I dont have the ability to correct anything. too many people are making money off this problem. perhaps myself included, depending how you look at it!
