Dairy Queen Continues Support for University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital

Although Miracle Treat Day has been cancelled this summer, our Dairy Queens continue to support local CMN Hospitals with their fundraising efforts. The UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital CMN Team is currently working on new and innovative ways to engage our DQ Stores. While we are living through unprecedented times, we are very excited about upcoming fundraising opportunities DQ stores are implementing to show their support for UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital. These ideas include, but are not limited to: Round Up, Miracle Balloon Sales, and Coupon Book Sales 

UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital has a longstanding relationship with Dairy Queen Stores. In 2019 alone, DQ donated $70,481 and over the past five-years, Dairy Queen has donated over one-half a million dollars! These dollars have helped support our Child Life Program, and impactful and robust program at our hospital that helps kids heal through play and better understand their disease or illness. Not only have our Dairy Queen stores supported our hospital with monetary contributions, they have also donated countless coupons, blizzards, and treats to UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital staff, patients, and families. 


Like our Miracle Families, Dairy Queens are motivated to being brave and bold while continuing to fight for happier, healthier futures and our hospital is fortunate to have incredible partnerships with over 80 DQ stores. The community-oriented support that Dairy Queen provides for our hospital changes lives, and our hospital is so grateful for this special partnership. Thank you to all of our Dairy Queen stores for advocated and supporting the patients and families at UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital!
