History: The Origin of Donut Day Donut Day is held annually on the first Saturday in June. This day is significant to The Salvation Army for reasons other than just our love for this tasty treat. In 1917, The Salvation Army began a mission to provide spiritual and emotional support for U.S. soldiers fighting in France during World War I. About 250 volunteers traveled overseas and set up small huts near the front lines where they could give soldiers clothes, supplies and, of course, baked goods. Discovering that serving baked goods would be difficult, two officers began frying donuts in a small pan. These tasty treats boosted morale and won the hearts of many soldiers. Nicknamed “Donut Lassies,” the women who served donuts to troops are often credited with popularizing the donut in the United States when the troops (nicknamed “doughboys”) returned home from war. The donut now serves as a symbol of the comfort that The Salvation Army provides to those in need through its many social services programs. Every Donut Day, The Salvation Army distributes donuts as a reminder of the comforting services we provide, and as a thank you to our community for their contributions that allow us to continue assisting those in need.
