The Philadelphia Eagles are set to take on the New England Patriots this Sunday in the culmination of the NFL season. Iconic Philadelphia donut shop Federal Donuts is showing its support for the team while also benefitting area schools.

Federal Donuts’ new 'Iggle' donut features Kelly green glaze and is, according to the shop’s Instagram post, “sprinkled with Philadelphia grit and brotherly love.” It will be offered at multiple locations throughout Philadelphia.

Not only will the donut celebrate the Eagles’ championship hopes, but also benefit the Fund for the School District of Philadelphia. Proceeds from the Iggle donut sales will go to help the fund’s goal to identify, coordinate, and connect philanthropic resources to leverage investments in Philadelphia public schools.

Federal Donuts is not the only area business looking to help Philadelphia public schools. ReAnimator Coffee Roasters is also benefitting the Fund for the School District of Philadelphia with sales of its limited-edition 'Foles-gers' blend of coffee, based on Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles.

The Iggle from Federal Donuts costs $2.75 for a single donut, $13 for a half-dozen, and $24 for a dozen. The Foles-gers blend from ReAnimator Coffee Roasters costs $19 for a 10-ounce bag.
