Dunkin' Donuts

At Dunkin’ Brands, community is the heart of their business. That’s why The Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation was established. Working in partnership with Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins franchisees across the country, the Foundation serves the basic needs of its communities through food for the hungry, safety and children’s health. It’s what they do every day.

Dunkin’ Donuts’ annual Iced Coffee Day is a critical fundraising initiative for Hasbro Children’s Hospital. Since its launch in 2010, Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees have raised nearly $775,000 for Hasbro Children’s Hospital. The much-needed funds have been used to create and produce activity books for patients, install a new play area in the pediatric ambulatory clinic, and most recently, the renovation of the sixth floor family room, which was unveiled in April 2014. This year’s proceed will help launch a new neighborhood and family safety program.

Hasbro Children’s Hospital and Dunkin’ Donuts Launch
“4-Safety” Program

Interactive Initiative to Help Children and
Families Takes to the Road

During a press conference on Thursday, October 9, Hasbro Children’s Hospital and Dunkin’ Donuts announced the launch of a new joint initiative, the “4-Safety” program, while unveiling the program’s Community Outreach Van.

The effort, made possible thanks to the generosity of Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees in Rhode Island and Bristol County, MA who have committed $1 million to Hasbro Children’s Hospital over five years, will work with families in local communities to reduce the risk of accidental injury. In Rhode Island alone, between 2007 and 2011, over one-third of child deaths were due to injuries, many of which were accidental and preventable.

Dunkin Donuts Franchisee“This program is a wonderful opportunity for us to further focus our efforts to support and improve the health and well being of those we care for outside of our hospital’s walls,” said Dr. Michael J. Mello, director of the Injury Prevention Center at Hasbro Children’s Hospital. “Dunkin’ Donuts and their franchisees have long been supporters of Hasbro Children’s Hospital; their commitment to establish this program underscores their dedication to the community.”

Beginning next weekend, the “4-Safety” program will host local events to provide safety information to children and their families through the “4-Safety” Van. Each event will focus on a timely subject, such as sports-related head injuries this fall. The first event will be held at the Dunkin’ Donuts location at 258 County Road in Barrington from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 18.

The “4-Safety” Van will offer takeaways to visitors as well as 1 to 2-minute educational videos featuring expert discussions on ways to prevent, recognize, and treat injuries. The van will also be interactive, including computer tablets, patient testimonials, demonstration models, and helmet fittings.

“Head injuries can occur in any sport,” added Mello. “Which is why being aware of the signs and symptoms of a concussion is critically-important.”

In addition to community outreach, the “4-Safety” program will also feature a website, www.4-safety.org, to promote safety information and initiatives, and a calendar of upcoming events. The website will permanently house all of the videos and testimonials used by the “4-Safety” Van during events. And don't forget to like our page on Facebook. www.facebook.com/4SafetyRI
