Dunkin Donuts' Heroes Recognition Program

I recently received a press release from the DC/MD/VA-area Dunkin Donuts with information on a fantastic promotion they are holding through the end of this year. It's a great way to recognize and thank a local hero - who doesn't love FREE coffee?

If you know of anyone that is an everyday hero in your life, please take a minute to nominate them!

Here are the details from Dunkin Donuts:
