How will you celebrate National Doughnut Day?

Chances are, you or someone you know craves doughnuts.

Tomorrow, June 2, is the day to honor this sweet creation.

In 1938, The Salvation Army in Chicago declared the first Friday in June as National Doughnut Day as a way to honor the work of the Salvation Army “Doughnut Girls,” also called the original “Donut Lassies.” These women served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I and World War II and are often credited with making the doughnut popular in the United States when the troops returned home.

How will you celebrate National Doughnut Day? We want to hear from you.
