A Little History

The Salvation Army is who we have to think for National Donut Day, due to their involvement in World War I. Volunteers would help to provide comfort foods to the troops and learned that donuts were easy to make and serve, even in the worst of situations. These volunteers earned the name of “donut lassies”. 

Donut Day became a thing in 1938 as a way to say thank you to the donut lassies for all the work they did and the risks they took to help provide comfort to soldiers.
