S&D partners with The Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Foundation
S&D Coffee & Tea has announced a long term partnership with The Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation (DDBRCF), which raises funds to support nonprofit organisations making a difference in communities across the US.
“As a coffee, tea and extracts supplier for National DCP, the USD $2 billion supply chain management company serving the franchisees of Dunkin’ Donuts, we are proud to partner with The DDBRCF in their goal of bringing joy to sick and hungry kids through partnerships with organizations like food banks and children’s hospitals,” said Steve Cole, chief operating officer with S&D Coffee & Tea, Concord, N.C.
In a ceremony held earlier this month, representatives from S&D Coffee & Tea presented a commemorative check to signify their Diamond level partnership with The DDBRCF and its grant program. Among The DDBRCF grant recipients are several North Carolina nonprofits: Charlotte’s Exceptional Youth Athletes, Second Harvest Foodbank of Metrolina, New Hanover Regional Medical Center and Interfaith Food Shuttle.
“On behalf of The Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation and Dunkin’ Brands franchisees throughout the country, we appreciate S&D Coffee for their generous support,” said George Ross, Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee and volunteer co-chair of the Southeast Chapter of The Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation. “Their contribution will go a long way in helping us achieve our mission to bring joy to sick and hungry children in our communities.”
S&D Coffee & Tea, which was recently acquired by Cott Corporation, is the largest coffee and tea manufacturer and supplier to restaurants and convenience stores in the US. S&D is also a leading producer of liquid extracts.
The mission of The Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation is to serve its neighborhoods by supporting children’s hunger relief and children’s health programs. The DDBRCF brings together a wide network of stakeholders, including franchisees, crew members and employees to serve their local communities. Launched in 2006, The DDBRCF has granted more than USD $11,000,000 to local charities.
