Happy National Doughnut Day!

Yep, there’s a day for that!  And no, it was not started by Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kreme.  The Salvation Army started National Doughnut Day in 1938 as a fundraiser for their organization and to honor the women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I.

Want to celebrate by making your own doughnuts at home?  The Salvation Army is sharing their original recipe on their website.

Or stop by a participating Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kreme for a free doughnut (with the purchase of a beverage at Dunkin).
