A bunch of donut places are giving out FREE DONUTS for National Donut Day today. You can get a free donut at participating Krispy Kreme locations. You don’t even have to buy anything. (Find the closest participating location here.)
You can also get a free donut at Dunkin’ Donuts if you buy a drink. (Check out a few more donut deals here.)
It’s not just a made-up holiday to sell donuts though. The Salvation Army started it in 1938 to honor a group of women who handed out donuts to soldiers in World War One to boost morale. So it goes back about 80 years. Now you know.
