That thrill could be as easy as turning into the next block across your street to celebrate National Donut Day 2019.
The History of National Donut Day
As unofficial as it sounds, you’d think this event is something the whole world should be a part of not for its tasty nature alone, but for what it represents.
It was 1917 where a group of selfless volunteers was sent to provide basic baked goods and other services to troops engaged in the war in France. It was no easy feat though and two Salvation army volunteers introduced the now famous idea to serve doughnut. This act kept the troops coming back for more and has since been celebrated. Although it took some years to begin, the National Donut Day has to be in existence since 1938. Now on the first Friday of June in each year, we get to enjoy tasty treats and also celebrate the Salvation Army charity, not leaving the brave ladies (the ‘Donut ladies) out and we also remember the heroes who fought bravely. The donuts constantly gave the troops a feeling of home.
The event has since continued to serve charitable purposes starting with the funds raised for people during the Great Depression and the National Donut Day 2019 won’t be any different. If you haven’t been part of it before, you’ll have a chance on the 7th day of June this year. The Salvation Army continues to provide enough meals to those in need in moments of crisis.
