NATIONAL DONUT DAY
HAPPY NATIONAL DONUT DAY FRIDAY, 6/3/2022!
DID YOU KNOW????
The Salvation Army National Donut Day was created to honor The Salvation Army’s ‘Doughnut Lassies,’ who braved the front lines to bake treats and boost morale for soldiers during World War I. The donut was then, and still continues to be, a taste of home and a symbol of comfort for Americans.
To celebrate, The Salvation Army of Champaign County gave out 17 dozen donuts at The Red Shield Center to the first 200 visitors.
Special thanks to Dunkin' and our lovely Donut Lassie volunteers, Judy and Jolane!
