National Donut Day

National Donut Day

June 1, 2012 is National Doughnut Day or National Donut Day (delicious – spelled either way), so our office couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate then to get donuts! The Donut Day tradition began on the battlefields of France during World War One, when Salvation Army workers went to the front to deliver spiritual aid and comfort to US soldiers.

Since, Deals Magazine loves deals, we found the best donut deal – FREE. It’s quite simple, just go to Krispy Kreme any time today and snatch a free donut or head over to Dunkin Donuts and get a free donut with any beverage purchase.

If you are in Chicago, there is a FREE Donut Day Concert in Millennium Park!

The Salvation Army, Entenmann’s Bakery and KISS FM Radio are partnering to celebrate the 75th Annual National Donut Day on Friday, June 1, and Saturday, June 2, 2012. Hundreds of Salvation Army Donut Day “taggers” throughout the Chicagoland area will be giving out commemorative Donut Day tags to donors whose gifts will help support programs for children, seniors, the homeless and families in need.  If you are unable to see the concert, donations to benefit Chicagoland Families in Need can be made at

Local media celebrities Brotha Fred and Angi from KISS FM Radio and Valerie Warner and Ryan Chiaverini from Chicago’s “Windy City Live” morning show will help The Salvation Army kick-off Donut Days with a free concert at the Millennium Park Grill on Friday, June 1, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This free event will feature free live performances by The Salvation Army Bermuda Divisional Band, Jamie Lono of NBC’s “The Voice” fame and the ever-popular Chicago jazz ensemble Entourage.
