PORTLAND, Maine - Dunkin' Donuts, Maine's all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, today announced their 2013 Dunkin' Dugout program with the Portland Sea Dogs. The program, in it's fifth year and spearheaded by local Dunkin' Donuts business owners, provides 200 children throughout Maine the opportunity to attend a Sea Dogs game, meet players, and be recognized during game festivities. Submissions are now being accepted from organizations throughout the state.

All Dunkin' Donuts stores in Maine are owned and operated by business owners who have strong ties to their communities, and this program is another way these individuals can support local youth organizations throughout the state.
