Today is National Donut Day.
It’s celebrated each year on the first Friday of June. The Salvation Army in Chicago created the day back in 1938 to honor the women who gave soldiers in France donuts during World War I. Several locations around the country are giving away free donuts today, including Krispy Kreme, Walmart and Hardee’s. Other locations are offering a discount or a free donut with a purchase, like Dunkin’ Donuts, Voodoo Donuts and Cumberland Farms.
