Attention All Squad Cars

01 June 2012 @ 09:08

From a press release published in the Sacramento Bee, we learn [tip of the fedora to Memeorandum]:

WHAT: A sweet celebration, 75 years in the making! Entenmann’s Bakery, the famous maker of more than 100 sweet baked goods, and The Salvation Army have partnered to celebrate the 75th National Donut Day, June 1st, 2012 with a sweet celebration at Madison Square Park in New York City.

The National Donut Day holiday, held annually on the first Friday of June, was established by The Salvation Army in 1938 in Chicago to honor the "Donut Lassies" who served these treats to soldiers during World War I and to help raise needed funds during the Great Depression. This significant occasion established the donut as a long-standing symbol of the services The Salvation Army continues to provide.

To celebrate the historical milestone, Entenmann’s will present a donation check for $25,000 to The Salvation Army, unveil the largest box of Entenmann’s Donuts ever created along with custom-made donuts 1-foot in diameter, and share a Proclamation Letter from Mayor Bloomberg. Entenmann’s will also be providing free donuts and The Salvation Army’s Canteen truck will be providing free coffee from 7 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the southwest corner of Madison Square Park, 23rd Street & Broadway.
