Celebrate Iced Coffee Day and Make a Difference on May 23rd!

Every night at 8:30pm, the city of Providence shines a little love toward Hasbro Children’s Hospital. Local residents, businesses, firefighters, and law enforcement take a second out of their busy lives and shine a light toward the hospital to remind those brave and amazing kids that they are thinking of them and wishing them well. In return, the kids flicker their room lights to say thank you. This simple gesture is just one of the many ways Rhode Islanders show what a big collective heart we all share. Over the years, this daily tradition, affectionately called Good Night Lights, has gained the national recognition and support. One of the biggest supporters of Good Night Lights and Hasbro Children’s Hospital is none other than Dunkin Donuts.
Dunkin Donuts iced coffee has been an integral part of almost every Rhode Islanders life for decades. We, Rhode Islanders love iced coffee so much, we actually have an annual holiday! Iced Coffee Day falls on Wednesday, May 23rd this year. This year, Dunkin’ Donuts is merging Iced Coffee Day AND Good Night Lights, for a huge celebration! On Iced Coffee Day, May 23rd, one dollar of every Iced Coffee sold at Dunkin’ Donuts stores in RI and Southeastern, MA, will be donated to Hasbro Children’s Hospital. To gear up, starting early May, participating local Dunkin Donuts stores will be handing out mini keychain flashlights with the date of this year’s Iced Coffee Day event stamped on them. Since its inception in 2010, this annual event has raised over $2 million for Hasbro Children’s Hospital!
All you have to do to be part of this event is do what you already do – swing into your local Dunkin Donuts location on May 23, and buy that iced coffee you’ve been craving; participating locations will have mini flashlights to hand out that day, and in the days leading up! On Iced Coffee Day, celebrate with your fellow Rhode Islanders! There will be mini-events with local political figures, local celebrities, even a Patriot player at Dunkin Donuts locations throughout the state. Then head to India Point Park for a “block party” that evening that will conclude with everyone using their mini keychain flashlights to shine our love on our friends at Hasbro Children’s Hospital.
This is a truly magical and heartwarming event! Iced Coffee Day and Good Night Lights – two wonderful Rhode Island traditions. It is a true celebration of the light and love that our great state and its amazing communities thrive on. You will not want to miss it!
