Honey Dew Donuts to donate a portion of Monday sales to the One Fund Boston
The parent of Honey Dew Donuts, a Plainville-based chain of more than 150 stores, said that participating locations will donate 10 percent of sales made in stores on April 29 to the One Fund Boston.
The One Fund Boston is an organization established by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino to raise funds for people and families affected by last week’s bombings near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. In its first several days of operation, more than $20 million poured into the fund.
“We were all shocked and heartbroken by the attacks made at the Boston Marathon and the tragic events that followed,” Richard Bowen, president of Honey Dew Associates Inc. said in a statement. “Our prayers are and will remain with the victims and their families. We have seen amazing acts of courage and heroism, and we could not be more proud to be a part of this strong and resilient community.”Chris Reidy can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
