Today is National Donut Day, and it actually has an interesting beginning.

National Donut Day wasn't started by a donut company as a way to sell more donuts; it was started to commemorate the day the Salvation Army served our troops donuts overseas in WW1!

Meche's Donut King on Pinhook posted the whole story on their Facebook page.


So have a donut today in honor of (and, if you'd like, to help support) the Salvation Army!
