Donut Day is June 7 2024.

Did you know that the first Friday in June is National Donut Day? Not that we need a reason to partake in these scrumptious, doughy treats . . . but there is a history with this day that we can share with our kids — in case you do need a reason! Such as, the first National Donut Day in 1938 was marked by The Salvation Army when it held a fundraising event in Chicago to help those in need during The Great Depression! Also, Salvation Army volunteers, dubbed Donut Lassies, baked and delivered donuts to encourage troops during World War I.

Now, for free and/or complimentary donuts, check out these upcoming events in our area to celebrate National Donut Day!
