The annual Dunkin’ Donuts Iced Coffee Day is being held on Wednesday, May 23, 2018 and this year area Dunkin’ Donuts locations are partnering with the local Providence tradition Good Night Lights to raise even more money in support of Hasbro Children’s Hospital.
For every iced coffee sold at Dunkin’ Donuts locations in Rhode Island and Bristol County, Massachusetts, Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees in the area will donate $1 to the hospital. This annual Iced Coffee Day has helped raise well over $2 million since its inception in 2010.
Good Night Lights is a daily tradition in which local residents, businesses and law enforcement officials let the kids at Hasbro Children’s Hospital know we’re thinking of them. Every night, at exactly 8:30 p.m., Good Night Lights participants shine flashlights (and police cars, firetrucks and ambulances turn on their lights) toward the hospital from various locations in downtown Providence. In return, patients in the hospital flicker their room lights on and off and shine their own flashlights from their windows.
Iced Coffee Day is all about helping the brave kids and their families at Hasbro, and so is Good Night Lights. So, this year, anytime you buy an Iced Coffee at most area Dunkin’ Donuts starting the first week of May, you will receive a small key chain flashlight that is marked with the date of Iced Coffee Day. Post to social media and let everyone know about the May 23rd Iced Coffee Day using the tag #IceDD4Hasbro.
All day long on Iced Coffee Day, Dunkin’ Donuts will be hosting mini events at various store locations with local celebrities and even a Patriot player. They’ll be at the stores working the windows and encouraging customers to take part in this great cause. The Iced Coffee Day celebration will conclude on the evening of May 23rd with a block party at India Point Park, where everyone who has received a flashlight are invited to head on over for a night of games, food and fun, all leading to a huge 8:30 p.m. flashlight flash to the Hasbro Children’s Hospital.
