LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – For doughnut lovers this could be the best day of the year. It’s National Doughnut Day!
There are a number of places where you can get a free doughnut today.
Dunkin Donuts is offering a free doughnut with the purchase of a beverage.
You can get a free Krispy Kreme doughnut when you stop in at one of their shops.
National Doughnut Day began in 1938 by The Salvation Army to honor the group’s “Doughnut Lassies” who served doughnuts during World War I. During the war there were 250 Salvation Army volunteers who served doughnuts to American troops in France.
The doughnut now serves as a symbol of all the social services The Salvation Army provides to those in need. The Salvation Army still serves doughnuts, in addition to warm, healthy meals and hydration, to people in need.
