Dunkin’ Donuts’ Pumpkins for Munchkins at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital




Yesterday Dunkin’ Donuts volunteer team made a stop at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in Tampa Bay for the third annual Pumpkins for Munchkins event to bring joy and smiles to the faces of patients, with a fun-filled day of pumpkin decorating.


The event is the third annual pumpkin decorating event and is part of the Dunkin’ Donuts Joy in Childhood Foundation, which provides the simple joys of childhood to sick and hungry kids. Dunkin’ Donuts also donated $30,000 to the St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital music theory program earlier this year.  



       The Joy in Childhood Foundation (formerly known as the Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin Robbins Community Foundation) provides the simple joys of childhood to sick and hungry kids. Through partnerships with children’s hospitals, food banks and nonprofit organizations directly committed to serving sick and hungry kids, the Joy in Childhood Foundation funds joyful environments, joyful experiences and joyful expression to ensure that children whose lives are compromised by hunger or sickness have the support and essential services to find joy in their daily lives.



The Pumpkin for Munchkins event is part of the ongoing efforts of Dunkin’ Donuts to bring joy to hospitalized children and their families and friends.
