Only 3 Days ‘Til National Doughnut Day!

WWI Salvation Army Doughnut Lassie

Ever since 1938, The Salvation Army has been celebrating our doughnut-making heritage on the first Friday of June.

The celebration began in Chicago as a way to pay homage to the young women who fed and fueled soldiers during WWI and WWII with hand-made doughnuts.

After more than 70 years, we continue that tradition this Friday, June 3 with tasty events taking place from the east coast to the west! We hope you’ll join with your local Salvation Army in honoring Doughnut Day.

Take a moment to read this post on the Western Territory’s Expect Change blog to learn the rich history behind this tradition, and we guarantee it will make your Doughnut Day even sweeter.
