Iced Coffee Day is Dunkin’ Donuts’ annual local initiative to support Hasbro Children’s Hospital. For every iced coffee sold on May 22, 2019 at Dunkin’ Donuts locations in Rhode Island and Bristol County, Massachusetts, $1 will be donated to the hospital.
The annual event has helped raise well over $2 million since its inception in 2010. As in the past, Dunkin’ is partnering with Good Night Lights. 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 they’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.
Starting this year, all new Dunkin’ stores in Rhode Island and Southeastern, Massachusetts will flash their lights as well. Iced Coffee Day is all about helping the brave kids and their families at Hasbro, and so is Good Night Lights. At many Dunkin’ locations when you buy an Iced Coffee in May, you will receive a small key chain flashlight to participate in Good Night Lights. The Iced Coffee Day celebration will conclude on the evening of May 22nd with a “block party” at India Point Park, where everyone who has received a flashlight, and all our community members, 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 our friends at the hospital.
Iced Coffee Day is a full day about them, and we want them to see just how many people truly care.
