Valentine’s Day is all about love, but why stay trapped in the clichés of the holiday to express it?
A beloved symbol of the season, heart-shaped donuts are back in several varieties, including Boston Kreme and Jelly, for a limited time. Additionally, this year classic frosted donut varieties are getting dressed up for the season of love with special Bling Sprinkles, for a fun new way to make guests’ Valentine’s Day treats sparkle. Featured varieties include Chocolate Bling Frosted, Strawberry Bling Frosted and Vanilla Bling Frosted.
In the spirit of celebrating couples coming together, we’re putting a pair in a square with its new Cookie Dough & Brownie Batter Double Filled Donut, its first donut featuring two fillings. Available for a limited time, this square-shaped specialty donut is perfect for sharing with your perfect pairing, with double the amount of filling of a regular donut. It features both brownie batter-flavored buttercreme filling and cookie dough-flavored filling, covered with chocolate icing and crumbled pie topping.
For another delicious way to spread the Valentine’s Day love, a 10-count box of Dunkin’s MUNCHKINS® donut hole treats is available for the special price of $2 for a limited time this month!
The Relatives organization focuses on helping children and young adults in our community by giving them a safe place to stay and helping them transition to independence. They help at-risk children through “a safe place” and operate a short-term crisis assistance center.
Charlotte ranks 50th out of the 50 largest cities for upward mobility. The youth in our community has a worse chance of escaping poverty than at any other city in America. The Relatives guide youths in crisis towards stability and independence in the hope that they can make it out of poverty and become productive citizens or our community.
We believe in their mission and support financially through the delivery of courses at the on-ramp center, delivery of meals to the crisis assistance center, and donuts as an occasional treat.
We attended their annual Breakfast with the Relatives Fundraiser this past Tuesday. The inspiring one-hour event is The Relatives’ only fundraiser of the year.
The goal is to raise critical funds that are needed to continue providing the wide array of programs and services offered to youth and young adults who need safety, stability and a pathway to independence. We were proud to serve as Table Captains.
The event is part of our commitment to give back and to help enrich the lives of those in our community.
