Dunkin Donuts donates to disabled kids
Dubai, December 28, 2008
Dunkin Donuts recently donated Dh30,000 to The Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services (SCHS), a charity set up to help children with special needs.
“We have been supporting the activities of SCHS for many years now as part of our company’s policy of actively supporting worthwhile community activities in the society,” said Dunkin Donuts general manager, David Rodgers.
'Dunkin Donuts was impressed by the scope of SCHS’s activities and would look at ways to strengthen our involvement with this charity over the coming years.”
'It was our way of saying thank you to the UAE community. We celebrated recently the ten million cups of coffee served to its emirates customers.'
“Dunkin Donuts has a social responsibility to help out and give something back to the local community,” he added. “We will continue to look at ways of how we could be of assistance to deserving local charities even as we go on a programmed expansion in the UAE .”
To support Dunkin’ Donuts expansion drive, a new state-of-the-art $5 million commercial kitchen in Sharjah was opened recently.
The kitchen produces from 35,000 to 40,000 multi-coloured donuts each day and these are delivered fresh to 115 points across the country. The kitchen includes a warehouse for storing the flour and mix, a kitchen for preparing and baking the donuts.-TradeArabia News Service
