June 1 is National Donut Day

Although police officers have been forever stereotyped as perpetual doughnut munchers, the truth is most people enjoy eating donuts. And on Jun. 1, 2012, folks throughout the U.S. can celebrate National Doughnut Day by stopping into a nearby Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kreme or one of many other doughnut shops to get one of the deep fried delights for free.

Every year, the first Friday in June serves as the day that we celebrate National Doughnut Day. Although today, it’s considered fun and frivolous, National Doughnut Day was established by the Salvation Army in 1938 as a way to honor women who passed out doughnuts to U.S. troops during World War I. It also served as a fundraiser for the Salvation Army to do something to help those in need during the Great Depression.

This year, Dunkin Donuts, which has franchises as far away as India, will give a free doughnut to everyone who purchases a beverage. On the other hand, Krispy Kreme, which is also an international franchise, will give one free doughnut to everyone who comes in, no purchase necessary.

Doughnut Day still serves as a fundraiser for the Salvation Army. So, unless you have a medical reason for not doing so, this year, on Jun. 1, show your love for helping others by giving in to your love of doughnuts. Whether you crave cake doughnuts, the traditional pastry doughnuts or flaky French crullers, stop in to a nearby doughnut shop and indulge … even if it’s only one day out of the year.
