The first Friday in June is National Doughnut Day and this year it falls on Friday, June 1st, 2018.
Doughnut Day was established by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor The Salvation Army’s “Doughnut Lassies,” who served the treats to soldiers during World War I. The “Doughnut Lassies” are often credited with popularizing the doughnut in the United States when the troops returned home from war.
The Salvation Army celebrated the first National Doughnut Day in Chicago in 1938 to help raise funds during the Great Depression and commemorate the work of the “Doughnut Lassies.”
Here are some ways to celebrate for National Doughnut Day here in Orlando, with lots of specials including free doughnuts:
