Today celebrates National Doughnut Day! As a matter of fact National Doughnut Day is celebrated on the first Friday of June each year. But how did it start?
It turns out that doughnuts are a significant part of Salvation Army history. Doughnut Day was created in 1938 as a fundraiser by the Salvation Army to help those in need during the Depression and to honor the “Salvation Army Women” who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I. It is still celebrated today!
National Doughnut Day has become a true American tradition.
