It’s National Donut Day! Here’s where you can find some donut deals
There are so many “National Days” that they can get a little silly sometimes, but Friday is a National Day we can all get behind: National Donut Day!
National Donut (or doughnut depending on your preference) Day is celebrated every year on the first Friday in June.
Back in 1917, the first “doughnut” was served by the ladies of the Salvation Army during WWI. They were cooked in the metal helmets of American soldiers and referred to as “doughboys”.
The Salvation Army will host its third annual World Doughnut-Eating Championship to celebrate National Doughnut Day and raise funds for its services for military veterans throughout Southern California.
