In addition to the week-long collection from guests, Dunkin' Brands will make a $100,000 donation to The One Fund Boston, a central fund announced by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, to support families of those impacted by Monday's tragic events at the Boston Marathon.
