Lincoln, Neb.—June 1, 2016—Today, donuts and coffee is a pretty typical combination at the office, but during World War I, it was a vital morale-booster on the battlefield. National Donut Day is dedicated to the Salvation Army volunteers who served coffee and donuts to soldiers on the battlefields of France.
This Friday, June 3, Russ’s Market will celebrate National Donut Day by donating $.05 for each donut sold from 6–11 a.m. to the Salvation Army. Donut lovers get a deal too, with fresh glazed donuts on sale, three for $1. In Lincoln, the Salvation Army Canteen will be at the 66th and “O” Street location serving coffee.
“The Salvation Army provides vital programs in our communities and we’re glad to join with our customers to celebrate that tradition of giving on National Donut Day,” said Pat Raybould, president of B&R Stores.
