Entenmann’s Bakery once again teamed up with The Salvation Army to celebrate National Donut Day, today, with a decadent celebration at Madison Square Park in New York. Started by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the “Donut Lassies” who served the round treats to soldiers during World War I, National Donut Day is annually held on the first Friday of June. This occasion is celebrated to honor the donut as a tried-and-true symbol of the services The Salvation Army continues to provide.
In celebration of the four-year partnership, Entenmann’s presented a $30,000 check to The Salvation Army as a result of Entenmann’s Facebook campaign! Entenmann’s Bakery has donated a total of $70,000 to The Salvation Army through the first three years of the partnership and hit the $100,000 mark with this year’s donation.
I took a much needed break from my Entenmann’s marshmallow iced cake, black and white mini cookies, and chocolate chip cookies to swing by this delicious event and have some donuts!
I will say it has been rough hiding this from my family, I do not share Entenmann’s! I have been honored to be a part of these festivities and watch Entenmann’s great donations the last few years, and eating free donuts next to the NYC Flatiron building is awesome!
And of course there is a celebrity picture! I thought they really were donuts and I tried to take a bite!
