Celebrate National Donut Day With A Free Treat!

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Donut shops in and around Charlotte will be offering some mouthwatering deals on Friday in honor of National Donut Day.

The day dedicated to donuts was started in 1983 as a fund raiser for Chicago’s Salvation Army. Salvation Army officials say their goal was to help those in need during the Great Depression and to honor the ladies who served donuts to soldiers in World War I.

Now, donut shops from all over are getting in on the sweet celebration by offering deals and special offers all day June 4th.
