The Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation, the charitable organization powered by Dunkin’ and its franchisees, guests, employees and partners has given $5,000 to Nebraska Medicine. The gift will enable the pediatrics department to add a variety of new in-room entertainment and engagement options for children during their treatment and recovery.

The gift was made possible through the Dunkin’ Iced Coffee Day fundraising event that took place at Dunkin’ restaurants nationwide on May 26. On that day, a portion of all sales of iced coffee beverages benefited the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation and its mission to bring joy to children battling hunger or illness.

These contributions were then distributed back to communities through various organizations such as Nebraska Medicine and its philanthropic partner, the University of Nebraska Foundation.

The Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation partners with food banks, children’s hospitals and nonprofit organizations to fund joyful environments and joyful experiences for kids when they need it most. Since 2006, the foundation has given more than $30 million to hundreds of national and local charities across the country.

Nebraska Medicine and its research and education partner, the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC), share the same mission: to lead the world in transforming lives to create a healthy future for all individuals and communities through premier educational programs, innovative research and extraordinary patient care. People come from around the country and the world for the unique expertise available from Nebraska Medicine.
