A season long partnership between the Rochester Red Wings and Dunkin' Donuts came to an end Monday at the Wings' final game of the season.
As a result of the partnership, more than 250 pounds of coffee is being donated to Foodlink.
At the beginning of the year, Dunkin' Donuts announced it would donate one pound of coffee for every run the Wings scored this season. The result means nearly 20,000 cups of coffee will be donated to Foodlink.
"These kind of donations from community supporters are very important. They help us do the work that we do everyday," said Martha Brown, Foodlink. "We can save money if the food is donated, so every food donation is important to us as food prices go up more and more food donations are needed every single day."
The coffee will go to Foodlink shelters throughout the Rochester area. Foodlink says it expects the coffee to last on its shelves for about two weeks before they run out.
