Salvation Army and Krispy Kreme celebrating National Donut Day

Salvation Army celebrates National Donut Day

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - It's been 100 years since the Salvation Army's "Donut Lassies" served donuts to American soldiers on the front lines during World War I. And now, the Salvation Army is serving them to you.

Friday, June 2 is National Donut Day and the organization is delivering 2,000 donuts to people in Grand Rapids thanks to donations from Krispy Kreme.

Those donuts will go to organizations the Salvation Army recognizes as "Doing the Most Good," as well as the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans, and everyday folks. They'll be handing out donuts to the public at various places in downtown Grand Rapids from 1:15 to 2 :15 p.m.

For more information on the Salvation Army and Donut Day, you can visit the organization's website.
