Doughnut Day is observed on June 1 and celebrated by many! During World War I, women volunteering for the Salvation Army made doughnuts for soldiers serving overseas as a way to boost morale.
Doughnut Day was launched in 1938 by the Chicago branch of the Salvation Army, in part as a way to raise funds for, and awareness of, the organization's work in the community. But the spirit behind the day was the recognition of these women's contribution to the war effort.
