Dunkin Donuts Joined The Salvation Army of West Palm Beach County to Provide Morning Treats to Local Social Workers.
West Palm Beach, Florida (April, 2021) – On Tuesday, March 30th, three Dunkin Donut locations joined The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County to celebrate National Social Work Month by treating local caregivers to morning donuts. The theme of this year’s morning give-away was “Social Workers are Essential” and highlighted the invaluable contributions social workers have made to the community during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Social workers who showed proper credentials received their “treats” at the following Dunkin Donut locations:
- 4440 Lakeworth Road, West Palm Beach, FL
- 1999 NW 2nd Ave, Boca Raton, FL
- 4644 Military Trail Blvd. Lake Worth, FL
In addition, Salvation Army Officers personally delivering 200 elegant Spa Gift Sets that included an inspirational Bible pocket card to local Social Workers who are providing care to families and individuals in partnership with the Army’s local programs. The Bible verse, “Be renewed in the spirit of your mind,” (Ephesians 4:23) is a meaningful message for Social Workers who provide extraordinary care to those in need.
National Social Work Month was first organized in March of 1963 by National Association of Social Workers as a means of encouraging public support for the profession. Then in 1984, a joint resolution of Congress was passed and was proclaimed by President Ronald Reagan under Proclamation 5167 on March 22 as National Professional Social Work Month.
“Social workers are indeed essential,” said Majors James and Leisa Hall, Area Commanders for The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County. “Without their professional assistance, The Salvation Army would not be able to protect children from abuse and neglect, provide mental health and substance abuse treatment, and assist veterans and their families. As caregivers, we do not know how we would have served the most vulnerable during the Covid Pandemic without their help!”
