This new school year is going to be a challenge for everyone involved. Krispy Kreme wants to “A”cknowledge educators of all kinds working through unprecedented challenges, no matter where the classroom is. Next Monday begins the brand’s first-ever Educator Appreciation Week. 

Straight A Dozen

On “Straight A Tuesday,” Aug. 11, Krispy Kreme will add a free “Straight A Dozen,” which includes three “Straight A” Doughnuts  to every pickup, drive-thru or delivery order (with the purchase of any dozen) to gift to any educator – teachers, tutors, parents, siblings, coaches, etc. – making a difference.

Each “Straight A Dozen” includes three “Straight A” Doughnuts, filled with classic Kreme™, dipped in chocolate icing, topped with sprinkles and decorated with “A+,” lined up in a row, along with nine Original Glazed doughnuts. The dozen offer will be available at participating Krispy Kreme shops and drive-thrus as well as through Krispy Kreme delivery within 10 miles of shops.

“Education is going to be very different this schoolyear and more challenging and important than ever. From teachers and tutors to parents and coaches we want to thank everyone who is helping our kids to keep learning in these tough times no matter where the ‘classroom’ is,” said Dave Skena, Chief Marketing Officer for Krispy Kreme.

Also, beginning Mon., Aug 10 through Fri., Aug. 14, Krispy Kreme will offer all teachers one free Original Glazed Doughnut and a regular-sized drip coffee to help fuel up for the new school year, available via drive-thru or in-shop takeout. All they have to do is show a school ID, no purchase necessary.

To support schools and community organizations in need of funding all year, Krispy Kreme is also introducing an enhanced fundraising program. Available now through Aug. 31, new contactless fundraising will be available through Digital Dozens – e-certificates redeemable at shops for one dozen Original Glazed doughnuts – for schools and other organizations looking to raise some dough.
