In celebration of National Coffee Day which occurred last week, Dunkin’ Donuts and its St. Louis franchisees are donating 500 pounds of coffee to the American Red Cross to support the organization’s critical mission, including volunteer and biomedical services, as well as disaster relief efforts. In total, Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees from across the country will donate 14 tons, which is 28,000 pounds, of coffee to the Red Cross.

“Dunkin’ Donuts is proud to support the Red Cross mission and contribute to the major relief efforts currently underway by the American Red Cross nationwide,” said Lynne McKune, St. Louis Marketing Manager. “Dunkin’ Donuts is dedicated to helping all of our neighbors and guests in times of need, and we hope this donation provides support to the Red Cross and the people they serve.”

Together, with longtime partner the Red Cross, Dunkin’ Donuts has also contributed to the recent relief and recovery efforts in Texas and Florida. Dunkin’ Donuts has pledged $150,000 in-kind product donations, delivering coffee and donuts to shelters, and has deployed sampling trucks to bring water and food to these communities. Additionally, many Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants provided free coffee to first responders.

“We would like to thank Dunkin’ Donuts for this generous donation of coffee,” said Cindy Erickson, CEO American Red Cross of Eastern Missouri. “The Red Cross relies on the generosity of the public to provide assistance. This donation of a warm cup of coffee will help provide comfort and help to power our volunteers through very long work days helping people in need across the country.”
