I’ve got three words for you: National Donut Day!

Submitted by on June 4, 2013 – 4 Comments

We love National Donut Day and not just because we love donuts (though we really, really do!).

It’s a great day because it honors military veterans and celebrates the role Salvation Army Donut “Lassies” had in comforting our troops abroad. In fact, National Donut Day started in 1938 as a fund raiser for the Chicago Salvation Army and has been celebrated on the first Friday in June ever since.

Here on the West Coast, our friends at BakeMark – a national baking supply company – are helping us toast National Donut Day on June 7 with a celebration for our veterans in Portland and Los Angeles, and you’re invited!

:: Portland – Get in the National Donut Day spirit from 9:00 – 11:00 AM at The Salvation Army’s Veterans and Family Services, 14825 SW Farmington Rd., in Beaverton
:: Los Angeles – Ring in National Donut Day from 7:30 – 9:30 AM at local legend Donut Prince, 1721 W. Olive Ave., in Burbank

And, more than 1,000 of the independent shops who use BakeMark supplies will have this poster in their window. Every donut you buy on June 7, 2013 from one of their shops will help The Salvation Army serve veterans through a generous donation from BakeMark.

Thank you BakeMark for helping us celebrate our veterans and for keeping our favorite shops flush with donut fixins!
