National Donut Day

June 4, 2021 is National Donut Day

On the first Friday in June, Americans celebrate the goodness that is donuts. But did you know that National Donut Day actually has its roots in doing good? 

The Salvation Army created the first donut day event in Chicago in 1938 as a fundraiser for its military support programs. We proudly carry on the tradition today by raising awareness and support for those in need, including providing shelter, food, and utility assistance, and honoring our front-line workers in the fight against COVID-19. 

This year, Clyde's Donuts, a Chicago original and our divisional Donut Day partner, not only celebrates you with these delicious treats, but they're also celebrating their very special 100th anniversary! 

Together with Clydes Donuts, we salute all front-line workers for all you are doing for our community in these uncertain times.
