SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Fifty young people from across the Pioneer Valley received a big boost for their college savings on Tuesday, thanks to a popular coffee shop chain.
Western Massachusetts Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees awarded 50 $1,000 scholarships to college-bound students from Hampden, Hampshire, and Franklin Counties.
The scholarships were awarded Tuesday morning during a ceremony at the MassMutual Center in downtown Springfield.
This is a program that has been going on for the last ten years. In that time, local franchisees have already given $600,000 in scholarships.
