It’s the 77th annual National Doughnut Day and the Salvation Army is honoring organizations “doing the most good.”
The Salvation Army popularized the doughnut in World War I by feeding Allied Soldiers on the front lines in France.
Volunteers from around West Michigan helped the Salvation Army celebrate nation Doughnut Day.
The community nominated organizations that are “doing the most good” and they received the gift of free doughnuts, and WOOD TV8 was one of the recipients.
Other organizations included:
Literacy Center of West Michigan
The 2,000 doughnuts were donated by Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, and were given to nearly 60 organizations around West Michigan.
The event was organized by a group of young professionals called The Action Group. For more information on how you can get involved in other events like this.
