Dunkin' Brands, parent company of Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins, today announced a $100,000 donation to the American Red Cross to support Hurricane Sandy disaster relief efforts.

Additionally, The Dunkin' Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation (DDBRCF) announced a $100,000 grant to Feeding America, the country's largest domestic hunger-relief organization. The donation will be distributed among numerous food banks in areas hardest hit by the hurricane.

"As those affected continue to feel the impact of Hurricane Sandy, our goal is that the company's donation to the American Red Cross will help provide assistance to the millions of people who have been displaced by the storm," said Karen Raskopf, co-chair of the Dunkin' Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation and chief communications officer at Dunkin' Brands. "Food banks also now face great challenges, and their needs will only increase as the holidays draw closer. We hope The Dunkin' Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation's donation to Feeding America will help local food banks support our communities during this difficult time."

In the days following Hurricane Sandy, Dunkin' Brands franchisees have sent trucks out into the communities to serve free coffee and hot chocolate to relief workers and residents.

The DDBRCF has had a national partnership with Feeding America since 2007 and has donated nearly $1 million to support local food banks.
