Where to Get Free Donuts on National Donut Day, Friday, June 2nd

National Doughnut Day is celebrated on the first Friday of June of each year.

It’s the day that those of us with a sweet tooth note on our calendars every single year- June 2nd marks the return of National Doughnut Day, the eponymous annual event that pays homage to everyone’s favorite circular, frosted, and jelly-or-cream-filled treat: the doughnut.
The event that finds its roots in the 1930’s, when the Chicago branch of The Salvation Army started it to honor members who had braved the frontlines of World War 1 while serving doughnut to our soldiers.
