The Salvation Army created the National Donut Day (also referred to as National “Doughnut” Day) in 1938 to honor the women known as “Doughnut Girls” who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I. Over 250 women were dispatched by the Salvation Army, who found that soldier’s helmets were perfect to fry up to seven doughnuts at a time. The Salvation Army not only honored the contributions of these women, but their intention was to also help those in need during the Great Depression. Today, many donut shops from coast to coast celebrate National Donut Day by giving away free donuts. Love donuts? Lovers of this beloved treat can rejoice since National Donut Day is on June 7th, 2019.
