The History of National Donut Day

National Donut Day is celebrated every year on the first Friday of June. This holiday started in 1938 by the Salvation Army to honor the “Donut Lassies” who served donuts to soldiers during World War I. These brave women made and served donuts in the trenches to help boost the soldiers’ spirits.
