National Donut Day

May 23, 2024 | events, feature

Stop by 777 Ospika Blvd S between 8:30am and 1:00pm on May 31st to grab a free donut in celebration of National Donut Day! A big thank you to Wende Bracklow and Connor Beebe for donating donuts to show your support.

Annually celebrated on the first Friday of June, National Donut Day was established by The Salvation Army’s “Donut Lassies,” who served these delicious treats to soldiers during World War 1.

The Salvation Army celebrated the first ever National Donut Day in Chicago back in 1938.

Today, the donut is symbolic of all the social services The Salvation Army provides to those in need.

Your friends at The Salvation Army Prince George express our gratitude for your ongoing support of the community through the work of The Salvation Army.
