Dunkin Donuts – “Purple with a Purpose”

During World Alzheimer’s Month this past September, ┬áDunkin’ Donuts franchisees helped to spread Alzheimer’s awareness with its “Purple with a Purpose” campaign. Multiple locations across E. Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire offered purple-frosted donuts during September. A portion of the proceeds were donated to the Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. In addition, purple mugs were available to purchase for $10.00, and every Sunday that mug is offered a free hot or iced coffee refill.
