Love those checks, especially the ones with no strings attached to ‘em. And that’s why this morning’s announcement by Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation is right up there with a Classic Banana Split with a cup of Dunkin’ chaser.
It seems that, to celebrate the grand opening of its combo restaurant at 14841 Coit Road on Wednesday, March 23, the foundation will present a $20,000 check to the North Texas Food Bank.
The funds “will provide 400 children with 4,000 backpacks filled with wholesome food during the summer, the hungriest time of the year.”
According to NTFB’s Jan Pruitt, who is still recovering from the over-the-top Empty Bowls on Friday, March 11, “The North Texas Food Bank’s children feeding programs are critical to supporting the one-in-four kids in North Texas, who are struggling with hunger. With support from The Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation, we can ensure that more kids have access to the food needed to learn and thrive.”
But there still more. Dunkin’ Donuts will also deliver breakfast to the teachers and faculty at nearby Dover Elementary the morning of the opening.
