The Salvation Army is known for many things, emergency disaster services, feeding the hungry, and red kettles during Christmas, but did you know that we have a famous donut recipe?
During World War I, the Salvation Army workers served coffee and doughnuts to soldiers in the trenches. Rations were poor so the doughnut idea was conceived as a means of bringing the soldiers cheer. Salvation Army workers provided spiritual aid and comfort to the American soldier and his allies, becoming a link with home and family.
