Chocolate, sprinkles, jelly-filled, oh my! National Donut Day is not only a holiday to celebrate your love for fried sugary pastries, but it’s actually rooted in America’s history. Created by the Salvation Army in 1938, this holiday is meant to commemorate the women -- known as “Donut Lassies” who served donuts to American soldiers during World War I to help boost morale. 

To honor the soldiers and women who served our country during the war, National Donut Day continues to be celebrated on the first Friday of June. Coffee shops and bakeries all around the country continue to celebrate this delicious tradition and have great deals on donuts.
