A $1 donation can go a long way in helping to support the efforts to cure muscular dystrophy and ALS. Dunkin' Donuts restaurants region wide are partnering with the Muscular Dystrophy Association through the "Make a Muscle, Make a Difference" campaign. Our Brad Vivacqua has more on this campaign.
NEW YORK -- When you visit a Dunkin' Donuts for a fresh cup of coffee, you're reminded to keep this campaign in mind through April 18th. You're encouraged to contribute just a $1 to help the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
It’s known as the "Make a Muscle, Make a Difference" campaign and is part of a partnership between Dunkin’ Donuts and the MDA. The campaign runs through Wednesday at more than 300 Dunkin' Donut shops from Albany to Buffalo.
A $1 donation will go to a local MDA chapter to help with summer camps, equipment, clinics, and research efforts. Store officials said it’s gratifying to see the money help children coping with muscular disorders.
"It actually hits home when you see the actual people that it's helping. They're all great kids, they have an unbelievable attitude you know for what they're going through and it really helps them to see people get involved in the community," said Tom Santurri, Dunkin' Donuts franchisee.
With a contribution, you'll receive a doughnut decal to post in a local store with your name on it. You'll also receive $1 off of a new Dunkin' Donuts sparkling beverage.
Store officials said so far this campaign has been very successful since it started last Sunday. Remember the "Make a Muscle, Make a Difference” campaign goes on through April 18th.
