Happy National Donut Day!
In 1917, Salvation Army volunteers started making donuts on the front lines of WW1. Nicknamed “Donut Lassies,” these women are often credited with popularizing the donut in the United States when the troops (nicknamed “doughboys”) returned home from war.
We've been celebrating Donut Day on the first Friday in June since 1938, to honor those first "Donut Lassies" and bring attention to the work of The Salvation Army. The donut continues to serve as a symbol of the comfort and hope that The Salvation Army provides to those facing crisis situations. We still remain on the front lines, "fighting for good," and giving hope to those who need it.
Would you consider helping to make sure we can continue to "do the most good" in your community? Donate today -- even just the cost of a donut or two -- to make sure that no one ever has to go without the help they need.
