Dunkin’ Has Your Back: Stepping up to help Hawaii communities

Supporting those hit hard by the pandemic and our hardworking healthcare heroes

Sponsored by Dunkin’

While many of our favorite restaurants or even coffee houses may have closed down temporarily during this time, you can still get your coffee and donut fix at Dunkin’! HI Now host Kanoe Gibson is on the line with Marketing Manager Casie Bui to learn more about what Dunkin’ is doing during this time of social distancing.

“Right now, we are open to serve our customers with their coffee and donut orders through drive-thru only at three Dunkin’ locations,” Bui explains. “The one by the Honolulu airport, at Kapolei Commons, and at Pearl City Gateway shopping center. For their convenience, we encourage our customers to order and pay through the Dunkin’ app.”

The folks at Dunkin’ know that the COVID-19 pandemic has financially impacted many people in our community, and they want these customers to know that Dunkin’ has their back.

“During this time, we are offering a free egg and cheese wrap and a small hot or iced coffee for our kupuna, keiki, and anyone who is unemployed due to this pandemic,” Bui says. “All they have to do is tell the cashier, ‘Dunkin’ Has My Back,’ to redeem the offer.

Not only is Dunkin’ supporting families, but Bui says the donations of coffee and donuts have also been made to the hardworking healthcare professionals at Straub, Kapiolani Medical Center, and Pali Momi.

Dunkin’ is also offering a fun activity that can help keep the kids busy while families are at home during this quarantine period. If you’re looking for new ideas, pick up a Dunkin’ Home Decorating Kit. You can buy one for $7.99, and it comes with four plain donuts, three cups of frosting (chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry), three cups of sprinkles (rainbow, DD, and chocolate), and three butter knives.

“It is such a fun activity for the family, and kids love getting to decorate their own donuts,” Bui says.
