    Friday is National Doughnut Day! Get Your Freebies

    Yes, you read it right. Friday, June 2 is National Doughnut Day — the perfect excuse to indulge in buttery-sugary-goodness.

    There are some freebie deals out there, if you're ready to wait in line.

    But the day, also known as National Donut Day, isn't just about stuffing your face with the tasty treats.

    National Doughnut Day commemorates the “donut lassies,” female Salvation Army volunteers who mended clothes and served home-cooked meals, including doughnuts, to American soldiers during World War I. The Salvation Army marked the day during the Great Depression as a way to raise money and spread awareness about its social service programs.
