Friday, June 2 – Donut Day!  

Join us as we say thank you to hard working people and organizations by treating them to donuts!  We’ll spread cheer throughout Grand Rapids by handing out free donuts!   

National Donut Day traces its roots back to 1917 when Salvation Army 'Donut Lassies' unselfishly served donuts and hot coffee to Allied troops on the front lines in France during World War I. Since that time, National Donut Day has been a symbol of The Salvation Army’s compassion towards others in times of need.
