National Donut Day is Friday, and Chattanooga’s Salvation Army and local businesses are taking part in the upcoming event.
Also, Bi-Lo, Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispy Kreme will be offering free doughnuts to celebrate a 78-year tradition started by the Salvation Army.
The Salvation Army will deliver doughnuts to local fire departments, police stations, the 911 call center, the Armed Forces recruiting center, the mayors and more.
“Tasty Daylight Donuts has donated their delicious doughnuts to the Salvation Army for several years,” Maj. Algerome Newsome, Salvation Army area commander of the greater Chattanooga area, said in a news release. “We so value their partnership and commitment to the community.”
Free doughnuts for the public
Bi-Lo will be giving away free powdered doughnut holes at all in-store bakeries. The limit is one per guest per store visit while supplies last.
Dunkin’ Donuts will commemorate the event by offering guests a free doughnut of their choice with the purchase of any beverage.
Krispy Kreme will also offer a free doughnut of any variety.
