Beyond the Celebration of the Donut
This is one of our favorite holidays because it celebrates our great heroes – our military veterans. They have sacrificed so much for us all and while they deserve much more praise and celebration, we honor them on National Donut Day. Maybe you are thinking – what do veterans have to do with donuts? Great question! This holiday dates back to 1938, when the Salvation Army began commemorating the veterans, the Salvation Army volunteer Lassies, and the relief efforts during WWI. The Lassies went into the battle zones to help care for the soldiers and the most requested snack by the soldiers became the donut. Hence, National Donut Day being established to celebrate veterans and donuts. Two of America’s great passions.
Spreading the Donut Love
The past two years during COVID-19 heroes have emerged from all occupations. Doctors, nurses, and hospital staff went into the unknown and put their health and well-being on the line to save lives.
