PATERSON, NJ – Life just got a little bit sweeter for Paterson residents that have relied on Oasis- A Haven for Women & Children for support during the COVID-19 public health crisis. On Wednesday, Adam Goldman, who owns shops in Paterson and West Orange, delivered 100 “decorate your own” donut kits to the local non-profit.
Each kit came with four plain donuts, as well as frosting and sprinkles to customize the perfect treat.
Since the onset of the pandemic, Dunkin’ locations across the New York region have stepped up to support their communities, whether it is through offering free coffee to frontline workers or providing non-profits with sweet treats.
As the outbreak has spread across the state, thousands are newly-unemployed, which has led to a surge of new visitors to food banks, pantries and soup kitchens. Thousands of families have turned to Oasis for food, hot meals, baby supplies, baker goods, fresh produce and personal hygiene items, which are distributed from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday to Friday.

Over the past few weeks, Dunkin’ has delivered over 182,000 complimentary cups of coffee, 35,000 donuts and $135,000 worth of gift cards to frontline workers in the New York metropolitan area.
The DIY Donut Kits, which are on sale at Dunkin’ shops across the country, stemmed from an idea by a company employee in California who asked her boss if she could take home some plain donuts, frosting and sprinkles for her nephews to decorate.
