Friday, June 6 is perhaps one of the sweetest days of the year — it’s National Doughnut Day!
National Doughnut Day, held the first Friday of June each year, was originally established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I and raise money for social service ministries during the Depression.
Today, we continue to honor the tradition by celebrating the tasty baked treat in the best way possible — with many businesses giving away FREE doughnuts!
