National Donut Day is Friday (June 3). Here's where to get freebies.
According to National Day Calendar, National Donut Day is celebrated each year on the first Friday in June. People participate by celebrating the donut and honoring the Salvation Army Lassies, the women that served donuts to soldiers during WWI.
Story Behind Salvation Army Lassies
During WWI, the Salvation Army Lassies went to the front lines of Europe providing home-cooked meals, and the first Salvation Army Donut was served there in 1917. The food delivery by the brave volunteers was a morale boost to the troops. Donuts were often cooked in oil inside the metal helmets of soldiers, leading to American infantrymen commonly being called "doughboys".
