The first National Doughnut Day was celebrated in 1938 in Chicago during the Great Depression to honor those Salvation Army volunteers during the First World War.
So, make sure to keep our troops and the Salvation Army in mind as you partake in the celebration. Maybe make a donation or just buy a doughnut (or donut if you prefer) for one of our service men and women.
Speaking of celebration, many establishments around the metro Atlanta area are doing something special for the day and we put a list together:
They are celebrating until June 11th with special donuts including Cherry Cake, French Crullers and the Butterfinger Chocolate Cake Donut.
They’re also celebrating their 3rd birthday on Friday with a FREE mini birthday cake doughnut with purchase.
Customers can get a FREE doughnut on Friday at any location.
