RANDOLPH, MA – Dunkin’ Donuts’ Joy in Childhood Foundation is activating $1.25 million in emergency funding to support health and hunger relief organizations on the frontline of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) response.
This includes a $250,000 donation to the Boston Resiliency Fund established by Mayor Marty Walsh to bring essential services to local residents whose health and well-being are most immediately impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The Foundation helps children battling hunger or illness with emergency grants that are designed to give flexible funding for organizations so they can apply for the support they need.
“Dunkin’ is made up of thousands of independent businessmen and women who care deeply about the communities they serve and demonstrate that care by supporting our Foundation in addition to hundreds of other local charities,” says Alex Smigelski, Dunkin’ Franchisee and Co-Chair of the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation. “The Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation has been working with hunger relief organizations and hospitals for many years, and we know that now, more than ever, they need resources and flexibility to be able to help those most impacted by the pandemic. We are happy to be able to give this support and want to encourage everyone to step in to help our communities during this time of great need.”
