The Salvation Army Celebrates National Doughnut Day Doughnuts

Doughnuts and Doing Good Make the Perfect Pair Day and Night
Friday, June 2, 2017
Saint Louis, MO

Interviews and photo opportunities available upon request, contact Jack_Wang@usc.salvationarmy.org for details

What: 
The Salvation Army will celebrate National Doughnut Day, a day first established by The Salvation Army in Chicago in 1938. To celebrate the day, The Salvation Army Midland Division will distribute donuts to our military men and women at area veteran hospitals and facilities, including the John Cochran VA Medical Center. We ask those who enjoy a donut on National Doughnut Day to share a picture to their social media profiles using #GivingIsSweet.

The Salvation Army is also celebrating with the St. Louis Public Library. Come enjoy doughnuts and coffee from Tim Hortons Cafe and Bake Shop and experience St. Louis Public Library’s “World War I: My Fellow Soldiers” exhibit commemorating the 100 year anniversary of America’s official involvement in WWI. The exhibit also pays tribute to The Salvation Army Doughnut Lassies who provided spiritual support, comfort and doughnuts on the battlefields during the war.

Who
The Salvation Army Midland Division and St. Louis Public Library

Why:
Held annually on the first Friday of June, this year’s National Doughnut Day marks 100 years since The Salvation Army “Doughnut Lassies” served the
delicious treats to American soldiers on the front lines during World War I. The Salvation Army Doughnut Lassies are often credited with popularizing the sweet treat in the United States when the troops returned home from war. The doughnut now serves as a symbol of the services and comfort The Salvation Army provides to more than 25 million people each year.
