For the 20(th) year, Dunkin’ Donuts, America’s all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, will support Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund in its global fight against cancer. New England Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees are committed to the Jimmy Fund, having raised $10.7 million since 1992. This year, Dunkin’ Donuts will continue to support the Jimmy Fund through several fundraising events and campaigns in August.

From August 4 through August 12, Dunkin’ Donuts will conduct an in-store campaign where guests at participating restaurants in Eastern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire can contribute $1.00 to support the Jimmy Fund and The Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation. Guests who contribute $1.00 will receive a paper cup icon that they can sign and place on the walls of their local Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant.

In addition, on August 4 and August 5, Dunkin’ Donuts will support the 33(rd) annual Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) bike-a-thon to raise money for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund for the sixth consecutive year. Since 2006, Dunkin’ Donuts has contributed $140,000 to the PMC. Over the years, Dunkin’ Donuts has fueled thousands of PMC participants — who come together to raise money for adult and pediatric cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber — by serving approximately 45,000 cups of hot coffee and thousands of bagels and muffins to cyclists, volunteers and spectators.
