Temperatures breaking 80 degrees, a refreshing beverage and a caring community all contributed to a successful fundraiser to benefit Foodlink in late May.
For a second year, Dunkin’ Donuts partnered with Foodlink to donate $1 from each iced coffee sold to Foodlink. Last year, the weather did not cooperate, but $10,000 was still raised to help Foodlink and the 200,000 people across 10 counties that benefit from our services. This year, on May 25, the community stepped up on a warm day to raise $16,000.
Dunkin’ Donuts presented a check to Foodlink during a pre-game ceremony at the May 28 Red Wings game.
“Every dollar raised will support our programs to ensure more neighbors in need are receiving fresh, healthy food,” said Terra Keller, Foodlink’s Chief of Staff. “It’s amazing how supportive our community is.”
Thanks to everyone who picked up an iced coffee last week — we truly appreciate it. Until next year …
