Get set for the sweetest celebration ever: National Donut Day is just 22 days away! Did you know that National Donut Day was started in 1938 as a fund raiser for the Chicago Salvation Army? Their goal was to help the needy during the Great Depression, and to honor the Salvation Army "Lassies" of World War I, who served doughnuts to soldiers. Seventy-five years later, we're still honoring a great organization, as well as a great snack.
This year, the Salvation Army and baked goods maker Entenmann's have partnered for the second year in a row to celebrate the 75th annual National Doughnut Day on June 1. Here's how you can take part:
Help raise money for the Salvation Army
From April 22nd – June 23rd Entenmann's will donate $1 (up to $25,000) to the Salvation Army for every LIKE they receive on the Entenmann's Facebook page.
Win fun Donut Day prizes
Entenmann’s is hosting a Donut Day Sweepstakes, where you'll get the chance to win free donuts for a year! They're also giving out other cute prizes like Donut Guy plushies, mugs and more. For more information and to enter, visit the Entenmann's Donut Day page.
