National Donut Day 2021 is on Friday, June 4, and doughnut shops like Dunkin’ and Krispy Kreme will offer customers deals and freebies to celebrate one of America’s favorite confections.
Did you know that Donut Day traces its origins to World War I? According to National Today, The Salvation Army volunteers would bring Donuts to the frontlines for troops, as they were easy to prepare during the dire circumstances of the battlefield.
In 1938 “Donut Day” was established to honor the Salvation Army’s so-called “donut lassies.”
Today, we still remember Donut Day every year, and enjoy the freebies that come with it. Here’s a roundup of where you can score free donuts, deals and more on Friday.
