Dunkin's Iced Coffee Day Helps Customers Donate And Chill


An iced coffee on a sweltering summer day is definitely something to be joyful about, but one that raises funds for local children’s hospitals makes it just that much cooler.

Dunkin’ is bringing back its national Iced Coffee Day on June 20, the official first day of summer. One dollar from each iced coffee sold will go to the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation, which enables grants at local children’s hospitals nationwide.

To celebrate the day, the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation will produce a series of “Painting with Joy” events at hospitals nationwide. The events intend to “bring joy to patients and their families through art therapy while raising awareness of Dunkin’s annual Iced Coffee Day fundraiser,” per the brand. The events will take place in various locations, with kids able to paint their own version of a Dunkin’ donut or have fun with a paint-by-number canvas.



“Dunkin’s franchisees are dedicated to making a meaningful impact in the communities we serve,” said Victor Carvalho, Dunkin’ franchisee and chairman of the board of directors for the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation. “We want our guests to know that every iced coffee order on June 20 will go a long way in bringing smiles and comfort to kids and families who need it most.”

This year the brand has created another fun way for customers to give back with a limited-edition iced-coffee-inspired iPhone case designed to mimic the drink, complete with floating “ice cubes.” The case will be available for a limited time on June 20 at for $15, with 100% of proceeds donated to the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation.

Dunkin’ Iced Coffee Day has raised over $3.5 million for the foundation in the past two years, which has resulted in approximately 200 grants to local children’s hospitals nationwide. This year the foundation is also commemorating another milestone; it has recently surpassed $50 million in grants distributed since it started in 2006.
