Dunkin' Donuts Pays Tribute to Children of Local Military Families

Dunkin' Donuts Guests Who Donate a Minimum of $1 to Operation Tribute Will Receive a Coupon for a FREE Medium Hot or Iced Coffee

BURLINGTON, VT--(Marketwired - November 11, 2013) - As part of their commitment to the local community, Dunkin' Donuts franchises are partnering with Operation Tribute for a fundraiser to support the children of military families in Vermont. Beginning on Veteran's Day, November 11, and running through November 17, guests may make a donation starting at $1 at participating Vermont Dunkin' Donuts restaurants to support Operation Tribute. In appreciation of their donation, guests will receive a coupon for a free Medium Hot or Iced Coffee to redeem at participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants in Vermont, valid from January 1, 2014 - January 12, 2014.

Operation Tribute is a non-profit organization that provides a holiday gift to children of serving military families, including the Coast Guard, National Guard, Reserves, Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines, living in New England, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Ohio.

This is the fourth year of a successful partnership between the Dunkin' Donuts Burlington Market and Operation Tribute. A total of $400,000 has been donated to the organization by Northeastern Dunkin' Donuts Markets since the program started. "We are proud to once again partner with Operation Tribute," stated Silvio Mazzella, Dunkin' Donuts Franchisee. "We are hoping this program will give both our guests and the families served by Operation Tribute the boost they need, especially as we enter the holiday season."

"Operation Tribute and the children of Vermont's military families are honored to partner with the Vermont Dunkin' Donuts franchisees and their customers for this fundraiser," Marc Badeau, Founder and Chairman of Operation Tribute, commented. "The franchisees clearly understand the daily sacrifices being made by the children of military families in their communities and are eager to show their support to help ensure that no child of a military family living in Vermont is refused a gift. We are proud to call the Vermont Dunkin' Donut franchisees and their customers not only partners, but friends."
