National Doughnut Day Deals
This is not a drill…Today is National Doughnut Day, and while we celebrate the glorious doughnut we are also celebrating The Salvation Army and the great work that they do!
Held annually on the first Friday of June, Doughnut Day was established by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor The Salvation Army’s “Doughnut Lassies,” who served the treats to soldiers during World War I. The “Doughnut Lassies” are often credited with popularizing the doughnut in the United States when the troops returned home from war.
The Salvation Army celebrated the first National Doughnut Day in Chicago in 1938 to help raise funds during the Great Depression and commemorate the work of the “Doughnut Lassies.” The doughnut now serves as a symbol of all the social services The Salvation Army provides to those in need. The Salvation Army still serves doughnuts, in addition to warm meals and hydration, to those in need during times of disaster.
To celebrate the day, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and Dunkin’ Donuts for some pretty sweet deals!
Krispy Kreme Doughnuts
“National Doughnut Day has become a true American tradition, but many don’t realize the historical significance of the day. The partnership with The Salvation Army and Krispy Kreme brings greater visibility to the importance of the day and the idea of helping those who may have fallen on hard times,” said Col. Ron Busroe, Community Relations and Development Secretary for The Salvation Army. “With Krispy Kreme’s generous offer of a free doughnut, we hope everyone will extend that generosity by giving back to support their local community.”
