National Donuts Day!

Today is National Donut Day (NDD), celebrated the first Friday in June (FFIJ) in honor of the Chicago Salvation Army (CSA). The CSA started NDD on the FFIJ 1938 so they could raise funds to help them feed Americans hungry and saddened by the Great Depression. NDD is also used to honor CSA volunteers who went overseas during WWI to feed soldiers from the USA. For those of you thinking "this story is full of holes!", too bad, I used the pun before you had a chance to say it out loud. You can probably tell your friends that you thought of it before you even read it, and they may pretend to believe you, but deep down, they really won't care.
