You donut want to miss this! June 2nd is National Donut Day. Every first Friday in June, people across America celebrate these tasty treats. 1938 marks the founding of the holiday. It is observed to celebrate the women of WWII who baked goods for the US infantry. The Salvation Army originally used this day as a fundraiser for those suffering during the Great Depression.
So grab a cup of coffee and enjoy everyone’s favorite breakfast pastry. Krispy Kreme on Atlanta Highway is offering one free donut (no purchase necessary) to everyone that comes in their store. Or support local Montgomery businesses by going to Ross Donuts on Bell Road and G & S Donuts on Woodmere Blvd. Whether you like them glazed, frosted, or filled, don’t forget to pick one up this Friday.
