National Donut Day in DesPlaines
This year marks the 100th anniversary of World War I, where the Salvation Army Donut Lassie was born. Salvation Army “Doughnut Girls” served along the front lines during WWI and WWII, giving soldiers free coffee and doughnuts.
The Salvation Army commemorates Donut Day by raising awareness and support for its services to those in need, including providing shelter, food, early childhood education, after-school programming, music education, alcohol and substance abuse rehabilitation and more.
Where to Get Donuts!
We have also partnered with Clyde’s Donuts, which are sold at Jewel-Osco locations. Our Salvation Army volunteers and staff will be in the local community on Friday, June 2 and Saturday, June 3 collecting donations and handing out coupons for two free Clyde’s Donuts.
If you would like to volunteer, call us at 847-981-9111.
Thank you to our corporate partner and volunteers who help make National Donut Day special!
