Dunkin’ of Northeastern Pennsylvania hosts its 10th annual Iced Coffee Day fundraiser today, with proceeds going to St. Joseph’s Center, Scranton.
Customers can get a free medium iced coffee with a cash donation of at least $1 for the center at participating Dunkin’ locations in Bradford, Carbon, Clinton, Columbia, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Lycoming, Monroe, Montour, Northumberland, Schuylkill, Snyder, Susquehanna, Union, Wayne, Wyoming counties. The money will help the center care for people and families with special needs.
The fundraiser has raised more than $350,000 for the facility since its inception, according to an announcement about the event.
“Each year, our team at St. Joseph’s Center is amazed by the support from the local community for Dunkin’s Iced Coffee Day fundraiser,” Sister Maryalice Jacquinot, president and chief executive officer of St. Joseph’s Center, said in a statement. “We are so thankful for Dunkin’ and its local franchisees, as funds raised from this day make an incredible impact on our residents and their families.”
The fundraiser is happening not long before another of the center’s major benefits, St. Joseph’s Summer Festival. That event will take place Friday, July 26, through Sunday, July 28, in the parking lot behind the Mellow Center for Athletics and Wellness at Marywood University, Scranton. Guests can take shuttles to the festival from marked parking lots on Marywood’s campus.
