The Salvation Army Brings National Donut Day to 93.9MYfm with Glazed and Infused

Major Nancy Powers and Glazed and Infused Donuts visited with 93.9MYfm radio station to talk about National Donut Day.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of World War I, where the Salvation Army Donut Lassie was born. Salvation Army “Doughnut Girls” served along the front lines during WWI and WWII, giving soldiers free coffee and doughnuts as bullets flied overhead.

In celebration of National Donut Day, The Salvation Army Metropolitan Division partnered with Chicago’s gourmet donut shop, Glazed and Infused. Glazed and Infused will donate 50% of proceeds from purchases of the Salvation Army donut on June 2 and 3.
