The Salvation Army founded National Donut Day in the 1930’s to honor its history of serving US troops.  This year’s celebration will feature a donut themed festival in front of the USS Iowa with attendees getting to relive history as Salvation Army “Donut Lassies” in historical costume serve up sweet treats. Folks who aren’t able to make it to the USS Iowa can still support veterans this National Donut Day by visiting one of the more than 1,000 donut shops across the Southland with the official National Donut Day poster in their windows.  For more information, visit The Salvation Army website or click HERE.
