Dunkin' offers Mother's and Father's Day gift cards
Dunkin' Donuts unveiled its latest promotion today - a specially designed Mother's Day and Father's Day gift cards.
The art work on the cards were designed by customers, and for every one of these cards bought on the chain's website during the months of May and June, the Canton-based coffee-and-baked-goods chain said it will donate $1 to the Dunkin' Brands Community Foundation, which supports local heroes who serve their communities.
The art work was chosen from numerous customer submissions, and the two winners each received $500 to donate to their charity of choice, Dunkin' Donuts said.
The Father's Day card was designed by Eileen McCarthy-Keddy of Medford. (Her design is at right.) While the Mother's Day cards can be had immediately, the Father's Day cards won't be available until May 15, the company said.
The Mother's Day card bears the art work of Margot Miller of New York City, Dunkin' Donuts said.
McCarthy-Keddy asked that her donation be made to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Dunkin' added.
The Mother's Day and Father's Day cards, as well as the standard Dunkin' Donuts gift cards, are available in denominations of $5 to $200, the chain said.
