Today is Doughnut Day

flickr/steve_cxThe Salvation Army is celebrating the 75th annual National Doughnut Day today, June 1, by giving away 2,000 free doughnuts from their doughnut partner, Kripsy Kreme.

The Salvation Army is widely credited with popularizing the doughnut in the United State by feeding American soldiers doughnuts during World War I.  The “doughnut lassies” of that time also helped the needy during the Great Depression.

Today, volunteers will be giving free doughnuts to the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans from 1 to 2:30 p.m.

Also, many businesses and organizations were nominated for “doing the most good” in Grand Rapids, and the winners picked will be getting a surprise visit with a dozen doughnuts.

In Kent County, over ten thousand people receive emergency food assistance, and Captain Bob Mueller, Kent County Coordinator, told me that while everyone enjoys a doughnut, he hopes we will think about giving back to those less fortunate.

Well put, Captain Bob, well put.  Let’s all help!
