"As those affected continue to feel the impact of Hurricane Sandy, our goal is that the company's donation to the American Red Cross will help provide assistance to the millions of people who have been displaced by the storm," said Karen Raskopf, Co-Chair of the Dunkin' Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation and Chief Communications Officer at Dunkin' Brands. "Food banks also now face great challenges, and their needs will only increase as the holidays draw closer. We hope The Dunkin' Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation's donation to Feeding America will help local food banks support our communities during this difficult time."

In the days following Hurricane Sandy, Dunkin' Brands franchisees have worked to keep local communities throughout the region running, including sending trucks out into the communities to serve free coffee and hot chocolate to relief workers and residents.

The DDBRCF has had a national partnership with Feeding America since 2007 and has donated nearly $1 million to support local food banks. Over the past five years, The DDBRCF has addressed the issue of hunger relief through both national and local efforts.

Since 2006, The Dunkin' Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation has donated more than $2.5 million to organizations that share its mission of providing food, safety and children's health to communities across the country.
