Just in…Dunkin’ Donuts is offering Gold Joy Donuts to help raise money for Children’s of Alabama. From July 1-15, participating Birmingham Dunkin’ restaurants will give $1 from every Gold Joy Donut purchase to Children’s. The proceeds will benefit children and families affected by cancer.

Everyone loves donuts, and this is a way you can make a difference.

According to CureSearch, 43 children are diagnosed with cancer each day as well as more than 40,000 kids are in cancer treatment each year. 

Dunkin’ is committed to supporting these children. It is their mission to bring joy to kids battling illness or hunger. 

Partnering with Children’s of Alabama is their “golden” opportunity.

“Children’s of Alabama is incredibly thankful for our partnership with Dunkin’. The Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s treats more than 90% of Alabama’s children with cancer and blood disorders. Community supports through fundraisers with our partners, as well as our Curing Childhood Cancer specialty car tag, are instrumental in providing funding to the Center for patient care and research.”

Additional Ways to Help

Of course, you can’t eat Gold Joy donuts everyday (who say you can’t!), so Dunkin’ provides customers additional ways they can help children not only in Alabama but throughout the country.

Here are more ways and opportunities to help serve the children of our community through Dunkin’.

But starting on July 1st, make your way over to Dunkin’ and support Children’s of Alabama.
