NYC’s Cult Favorite Dough Doughnut Donates to 60 Hospitals
New York’s beloved cult favorite, Doughs Doughnuts decided at the onset of the pandemic that healthcare workers needed a sweet treat on their hardest days. With foot traffic already diminished by stay-at-home orders, and a deep desire to keep their production teams employed during this crisis, Dough stepped up the action.
To date, they have now delivered thousands of their doughnuts to more than 60 hospital units during the COVID-19 pandemic, bringing smiles through sweets in the midst of these unfortunate times.
Dough Doughnuts has also used their Frontline Sweet Support to recently create Doughnut & Coffee Breaks, partnering with Kids for Kids NYC, NY Loves Coffee, Noshes for Nurses, Jill Zarin, Ally Shapiro, and Owyn to bring doughnut and coffee breaks to some of the hardest hit hospitals. With the joint efforts were able to bring hundreds of items to hundreds of doctors and nurses for a quick coffee and sweets break during hard days.
“Food may be for the body, but desserts feed your soul.” By fueling the frontline, Frontline Sweet Support has created a way for people to spread compassion and kindness and say thank you when you physically cannot. Starting with the staff at Lenox Hill hospital, they created a way to make a huge impact by mobilizing their efforts to deliver NYC’s favorite sweets to the workers of the tri state area. They are thrilled to be sending hugs, good vibes and smiles through their services.
I would love to collaborate on a feature about Dough Doughnuts and their Frontline Sweet Support initiative, alongside their tremendous efforts to stay open and give back to their community during these unfortunate times.
