Say thank you to the community with free donuts


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) – There’s so much good working being done in our community and the Salvation Army wants to say thank you with free donuts. Friday June 5th is National Donut Day, and it’s an opportunity for you to get involved by nominating organizations or businesses that are doing good work in our community and making it a better place to live.

Nominate a business here and they will get a dozen free donuts on Friday, June 5. Two thousand donuts will be given out to over 50 businesses and organizations, so get involved and nominate them today.

Get some ideas of who to nominate by watching the video below:

National Donut Day goes back to 1917 when the Salvation Army delivered donuts to US World War I soldiers fighting in France. The Salvation Army has continued this tradition as a way to say thanks to others who give back with their time, treasure and talents.

Besides for nominating, you can give back by volunteering in the event. There’s more information on how you can volunteer or sign up here.

Thank those who are doing good work in our community by nominating them for free donuts on National Donut Day this Friday June 5th. Nominate here today!
