National Donut Day

Ah, the donut. Whether it’s powdered, jelly-filled, or frosted, this classic treat is always delicious, making National Donut Day a great reason to celebrate!Did you know that National Donut Day began as a fundraiser for the Salvation Army in 1938? It’s held annually on the first Friday of June, in honor of the female volunteers of World War I who served donuts to soldiers behind the front lines.

This year, the generosity lives on: Dunkin Donuts customers will receive a free donut with the purchase of any beverage, while Krispy Kreme will be handing out one free donut per person (with no additional purchase necessary). Be sure to check out your local donut shop, as other bakeries across the nation are sure to be celebrating.

This National Donut Day, indulge yourself by picking up a freshly baked donut, or keep the charitable tradition alive and buy a box to share!
