Many people celebrate National Donut Day on the first Friday in June. It was started by the Salvation Army in 1938 to help those in need during the great depression and commiserate the work of the “Donut Lassies,” who served donuts to soldiers in World War I. Donut Day is the symbol of the comfort that the Salvation Army provides to those in need through its many social programs.
