Looking for a sweet treat to pair with your pup’s morning pick me up?

The MUNCHKINS® donut hole treats dog toy is a multipart toy, lined with felt and complete with three plush, squeaky MUNCHKINS® donut hole treat toys inside. 

What makes these toys even sweeter is that you can get them as a gift for your donation to the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation! For every $12 donation, you get the Dunkin’® Coffee Cup and for every $15 you get the multi-part Munchkins® Donut Hole Treat toy.

The Joy in Childhood Foundation is dedicated to helping children who are battling hunger and illness. Since their launch in 2006, the Joy in Childhood Foundation has distributed more than $26 million in grants to national and local nonprofits across the country. They donate to a wide variety of charities that often focus on one of two goals; making sure kids don’t go without a meal or creating memorable experiences for extremely ill children. One such program they’ve created to do this is Dogs for Joy.

Dogs for Joy aims to increase the number of dogs working full-time in children’s hospitals. These dogs can become a big part of a child’s treatment, assisting in everything from keeping a child calm during a medical intervention to helping them take their medicine. In addition to programs like this one, Joy in Childhood foundation helps at local levels by bringing in volunteers for charities and food banks, creating change within a community.
