Shriners Hospital for Children receives $30k in donations

Springfield, Mass.-based Shriners Hospital for Children received $30,000 from Dunkin' Donuts to support enhancements at the hospital, according to MassLive.

Dunkin' Donuts raised $20,000 for Shriners Hospital for Children through a local fundraiser on national iced coffee day and donated another $10,000 through its foundation, the Joy in Childhood Foundation.  

The $30,000 donation will help fund the hospital's new acute rehab unit, which treats patients who are in need of three hours of physical, occupational or speech therapy per day. The funds will also help upgrade the outpatient cast room, including purchasing noise cancelling headphones to drown out the saw.

"We are so grateful and privileged to be the recipient of proceeds from the annual Dunkin' Donuts Iced Coffee Day and The Joy in Childhood Foundation," Karen Motyka, director of development at Shriner's Hospital for Children, told MassLive. "Since 2012, over $154,000 has been donated to our hospital in support of special projects that help transform the lives of our patients and families."
