What is National Donut Day?
National Donut Day is Friday, June 7 this year. The Salvation Army officially established National Donut Day in 1938. According to Apple News, The holiday was a way to honor the women who used what minimal resources they had to make donuts for soldiers and cheer them up during World War I. (At their peak, they made and delivered up to 9,000 donuts per day!) Since then, it’s been celebrated on the first Friday of June.
