Why is there a National Doughnut Day?
I know what you’re thinking. Does the USA really need a National Doughnut Day? Well, yes, actually, we do. Historically, National Doughnut Day began during the days of World War I. Two brilliant members of The Salvation Army, Margaret Sheldon and Helen Purviance, came up with the idea of handing out doughnuts to US soldiers stationed in France. Their days became instantly busy and they handed out hundreds of doughnuts and cups of coffee to soldiers. We continue to celebrate National Doughnut Day in memory of those soldiers and the efforts of The Salvation Army.
