History, partnerships, celebrations

National Donut Day is a celebration of the unifying power of our favorite breakfast pastries and has a surprising history spanning over seven decades.

History of National Donut Day: In 1938, National Donut Day originated as a fundraising initiative of the Salvation Army to help those affected by the Great Depression. In addition, it served as a tribute to the brave “Lassies” of the First World War, who gave donuts to the soldiers at the front in France. Since then, donuts have become a culinary symbol of community, bringing people closer together through shared fun.

Salvation Army Partnership: LaMar’s Donuts has joined forces with the Salvation Army for the past 14 years, hosting an annual National Donut Day fundraiser. This year, LaMar’s Donuts & Coffee is dedicated to supporting the tradition of National Donut Day by partnering with the Salvation Army to distribute donuts in our communities and engage customers in the celebration at each location. At all LaMar locations, Salvation Army Bell Ringers will be on-site at select locations gathering support for those in need. LaMar patrons can donate directly at https://salarmy.us/dd22im.

How we’re celebrating: Join us at any LaMar’s Donuts & Coffee on Friday, June 7th for a Ray’s Original Glazed Donut.

“Our passion for donuts began with Ray LaMar in 1933 and has continued for the past 91 years as we have worked to create the perfect donut,” says Temi Osifodunrin, Director of Donut Marketing at LaMar. “Every year, we look forward to National Donut Day to celebrate our love of donuts and all they bring to a community.”
