The Salvation Army Metro Atlanta Area Command, Duck Donuts Partner for National Donut Day


On Friday, June 1, The Salvation Army of Metro Atlanta and Duck Donuts celebrated National Donut Day. Volunteers dressed as Salvation Army Donut Girls (“Donut Lassies”), and patrons got a chance to try a specialty crafted Salvation Army donut that the Duck Donuts team created after the Lassies’ namesake.

The national holiday was created in Chicago in 1938 as a Salvation Army fundraiser to honor the women who served doughnuts soldiers in WWI. Today, National Donut day is recognized as a symbol of comfort to all. How sweet!
