I learned of National Donut (or doughnut, however you prefer to spell it) Day from a box of donuts, of all places! Entenmann’s Crumb Topped Donuts are just the bees knees and this pregnant lady has enjoyed her fair share over the past few weeks. This year it falls on Friday, June 3rd!
I would show real donuts in the picture, but let’s be honest. That box is empty.
This box of donuts taught me that National Donut Day, which is celebrated annually on the first Friday in June, started in 1938. It begun to honor the Salvation Army “Lassies” of WW1 who served donuts to the soldiers.
You can help support the efforts of the Salvation Army AND win free treats by hopping over to Entenmann’s Facebook page here to enter the sweepstakes to win donuts for a year! For each entry they receive they will donate $1 to The Salvation Army. Helping the needy and a chance to win free donuts! Is there anything better?
Other donut distributors are getting in on the National Donut Day action as well…
Krispy Kreme is offering one free doughnut! No purchase is necessary, but the company does encourage patrons to donate to the Salvation Army.
Dunkin’ Donuts has a free doughnut with any drink purchase.
Duck Donuts is a offering one free sugar donut via their Facebook offer.
