Dunkin’ Donuts partners with Special Olympics

Dunkin’ Donuts has been a proud partner of Special Olympics for more than 25 years. Throughout this partnership, Dunkin’ Donuts has raised more than $1 million for Special Olympics.

This year Dunkin’ Donuts will hold a special donut promotion to help raise funds in support of  Special Olympics’ mission to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
