National Donut Day —or National Doughnut Day, as some spell it — is the first Friday in June, making it June 1 this year. According to a press release from LaMars, the observance was started in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army in honor of the women who brought donuts to soldiers behind the front lines in World War I. At least three national donut chains are observing the delicious holiday by offering a FREE donut to customers:
All of the offers are valid at participating locations, while supplies last. No purchase necessary, unless noted. Here’s a round-up of the this year’s “hole-y” deals:
