Dunkin’ Donuts is once again partnering with Make-A-Wish Central New York to bring back star donuts for a good cause.
For the sixth year, Dunkin’ Donuts locations in the Mohawk Valley will sell star-shaped donuts with blue and white icing for $1 to benefit Make-A-Wish. The donuts will be sold from Sunday, April 29 through Monday, May 7.
Since the Star Donut campaign’s inception in 2013, more than $285,000 has been raised for Make-A-Wish.
Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with critical illnesses, such as Ayden from Herkimer, whose wish was to visit the fire stations at Disney.
“The smiles he's had from the minute that we first met our wish granters, straight through the day that we came home from our wish, has been fantastic,” said Cindy Davis, Ayden’s mother.
“The average cost of a wish is $10,000,” said Laura Wittenback, board chair for Make-A-Wish. “And we have over 200 wishes in the pipeline right now, so very dollar counts.”
