Dunkin’, which is in the process of adding several new locations in Montgomery County, is giving away Free coffee and “Wake-Up” wraps for American Red Cross donors as a part of National Blood Donor Month. Per Dunkin’: January is National Blood Donor Month, a time to recognize the importance of giving blood and platelets while honoring those who roll up a sleeve to help patients in need. To help drive awareness and blood donations this winter, Dunkin’ of the DMV is partnering with the American Red Cross to provide 20,000 coupons valid for (1) free Medium Hot or Iced Coffee and (1) free Egg & Cheese Wake-Up Wrap to blood donors in the region, redeemable at participating Dunkin’ restaurants throughout Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia.*
Blood and platelets are needed each day to help patients battling disease and facing the unexpected. Donating blood is an easy way to care for each other and ensure hospitals have the blood products patients rely on.
“During these challenging times, Dunkin’ and our local franchisees want to do all we can to support those who are giving back to our community,” said Dunkin’ franchisee Parag Patel. “We are excited to once again team up with the American Red Cross and hope that by providing donors with a delicious Dunkin’ Hot or Iced Coffee and satisfying Wake Up Wrap we can help encourage our community to stop by a donation center and roll up a sleeve to help save lives.”
