Portion of Sales from Each Breast Cancer Awareness Assortment will be Donated to Feel Your Boobies Foundation
Duck Donuts in Hershey, known for serving Warm, Delicious and Made to Order! ® donuts, is featuring a special Breast Cancer Awareness assortment through October in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A portion of the sales from each pink-inspired assortment, featuring donuts such as vanilla icing with breast cancer awareness sprinkles and strawberry icing with marshmallow drizzle and shredded coconut, will be donated to the Feel Your Boobies Foundation.
“Women and their families are among our loyal customers at Duck Donuts,” said Stephanie Plummer, owner of Duck Donuts in Hershey. “We are proud to partner with Feel Your Boobies Foundation throughout the month to honor the survivors, the fighters and the loved ones we have lost due to this terrible disease in hopes of raising awareness and having the opportunity to give back to those in our community.”
The donation will support the Foundation’s College Outreach Program, which focuses on educating, engaging and empowering young women on college campuses by providing free educational resources and peer-to-peer programming to them.
“We are so excited to be working with Duck Donuts because our College Outreach Program relies on partnerships like this,” said Leigh Hurst, founder of Feel Your Boobies Foundation. “With support like this we will be able to reach more young women with our education programs, which provided free breast health education kits to over 200 college health centers nationwide this year.”
Duck Donuts specializes in warm, delicious and made-to-order donuts.

ABOUT DUCK DONUTS
Duck Donuts was founded in 2006 by Russ DiGilio in Duck, North Carolina. His intention? To solve a family vacation problem: “Our family wanted a place to buy warm, delicious, made-to-order donuts, and when we couldn’t find one, we decided to start our own.”
By 2011, Duck Donuts had expanded to four Outer Banks locations and the donut business was so successful that DiGilio was continuously approached about franchise opportunities by fans who begged for a Duck Donuts in their community. The first franchise opened in Williamsburg, Virginia, in 2013, and there are now 51 open franchise locations and more than 130 additional contracts.
