Since 1938, The United States has been celebrating National Doughnut Day the first Friday in June. National Doughnut Day was created by a Chicago branch of the Salvation Army with a two-fold purpose: create awareness of the Salvation Army’s community service projects and to help raise money for these projects. The doughnut theme paid tribute to the Salvation Army’s dough lassies, who would pass out doughnuts to the troops during the First World War (it was so popular that it resumed during WWII–you can read more about it here!).
I had every intention of creating a doughnut post yesterday, however, with the excitement and craziness of FAMILY! arriving, I forgot all about it.
