FREE is the word on National Donut Day - June 1st


National Donut Day, held annually on the first Friday of June, was established by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor The Salvation Army’s “Donut Lassies” who served these treats to soldiers during World War I. This significant occasion established the donut as a long-standing symbol of the services The Salvation Army continues to provide.

"National Donut Day has become a true American tradition in which The Salvation Army and Entenmann's Bakery asks the general public to remember those who fought in World War I, as well as their neighbors who may have fallen on hard times," said Major George Hood, National Community Relations and Development Secretary for The Salvation Army.

“The Salvation Army is so grateful that Entenmann’s, Hollywood Market and Krispy Kreme have joined The Salvation Army in celebrating Donut Day,” said Major Mark Anderson, general secretary and metro Detroit area commander of The Salvation Army Eastern Michigan Division. “This day serves as another reminder of The Salvation Army’s commitment to fighting poverty in our city for 125 years.”
