What is National Donut Day?

In 1938, a Salvation Army officer declared the first Friday in June "National Donut Day," both as a fundraiser and as a way to honor the memory of The Salvation Army volunteer "Donut Lassies," who served the nutritous treat during WWI. These volunteers were the only female nonmilitary personnel stationed on the front lines, preparing donuts inside U.S. soldiers’ steel helmets, using only hot oil and a stove!

From that humble beginning, The Salvation Army has been celebrating National Donut Day the first Friday in June every year since!
