Dunkin' Donuts, under the leadership of Jon Luther, and with the help of spokesperson Rachel Ray, has kicked off a national card drive with a donation of 1 ton of coffee to Soldiers Angels. See story here.
As part of this kick off, Rachael Ray will unveil an initial one ton donation of Dunkin' Donuts coffee to Soldiers' Angels founder, Patti Patton- Bader, which will be included in 2,000 care packages, and will honor two of the organization's hardest working volunteers. In addition, visitors to www.ServingHeroes.com may make donations to Soldiers' Angels. ServingHeroes.com is an online effort from Dunkin' Donuts in conjunction with The Dunkin' Brands Community Foundation to recognize individuals throughout America who have helped emergency response organizations better serve their communities.
"I'm thrilled to help Dunkin' Donuts launch the Gingerbread Express for local shoppers and kick off a national card drive that will show our appreciation for the heroes who serve this country every day," said Rachael Ray. "With these programs, we can spread the holiday spirit in a fun and important way, while providing a little taste of home through Dunkin' Donuts coffee and handwritten messages to our brave servicemen and women."
"It means so much to us that Dunkin' Donuts is supporting those who serve," said Patti Patton-Bader. "The card drive helps United States military personnel know that we're remembering them and honoring their service ... and the donation of one ton of coffee will provide a taste of home they will really appreciate."
