Friday June 05 is National Doughnut Day!

This holiday was established by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the ladies that handed out doughnuts in fund raising events during the Great Depression and to US soldiers during World War I.

Entenmann’s donuts will be distributed at Rodney Square in Wilmington, the city of Dover’s Post Office  and Rehoboth Beach boardwalk.  Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Crème are honoring this occasion by offering free doughnuts, (restrictions apply).

National Doughnut Day is a working holiday. 
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to eat the donuts!
