Dunkin Donuts is partnering with the Make-a-Wish Foundation to help fulfill the dreams of sick kids.
Since 2013, the two have joined forces on the Make-a-Wish Star Donut Program.
Now through May 7th, customers that donate one dollar to Make-a-Wish will receive a special star donut.
14-year-old Maddie Shaw of Binghamton has battled cancer for years.
Thanks to Make-a-Wish, Maddie and her family went to Nickelodeon resort in Punta Cana last summer.
She says without organization, the amazing experience would never have been possible.
“It’s like a really great opportunity for kids to either go somewhere or meet someone they’ve always wanted to meet. They might not have had that opportunity if Make-a-Wish wasn’t doing it for them,” Maddie says.
Since the launch of the Star Donut program, Dunkin has raised $362,000 for Make-a-Wish.
Right now, Make-a-Wish of Central New York has 150 active wish projects with 25 of them being in the Southern Tier.
Chapter President Diane Kupperman says the average cost of granting a wish is $12,000.
