Dunkin’ Donuts announced today that it has donated $100,000 to The One Fund Boston to support families of those impacted by Monday’s Boston Marathon bombings.
The fund was announced this week by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. Additionally, Boston-area Dunkin’ franchisees have been and will continue to support emergency workers in the community, including sending trucks to serve coffee and hot chocolate, according to the company.
More fundraising to come
Also, starting next week, approximately 2,000 participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Maine will collect donations from guests, starting at $1, to be distributed to The One Fund Boston.
“We are an organization with proud Boston roots, and our hearts are with those who were affected by the events at the Boston Marathon,” said Nigel Travis, CEO of Dunkin’ Brands. “We hope the donation to The One Fund Boston will help victims and their families during this difficult time.”
Dunkin’ Donuts is based out of nearby Canton, Mass.
