Held annually on the first Friday of June, this year’s National Doughnut Day marks 100 years since The Salvation Army’s “Donut Lassies” served the delicious treats to American soldiers on the front lines during World War I. The Salvation Army Donut Lassies are often credited with popularizing the sweet treat in the United States when the troops returned home from war.
