After serving donuts – often cooked in battle helmets – to U.S. troops in the field during World War I, many soldiers came back to the States hooked on the pastries. Subsequently donut consumption took off in the U.S. during the 1920s and 1930s.
Though that war has come and gone, Salvation Army workers continue to care for and comfort thousands of people each day who battle hunger around the world and here in metro Atlanta.
This Friday, June 1st, we will be celebrating National Donut Day by distributing donuts to military personnel at the USO Center inside Hartsfield – Jackson International Airport, stay tuned for photos….
*Krispy Kreme will pay homage to this Salvation Army holiday by offering every guest one FREE donut of any variety at Krispy Kreme US locations on National Donut Day, so stop by for your sweet treat while supplies last!*
