FROM a Boston cream to a bear claw, donuts are a perfect way to fill up your sweet tooth on a sunny summer day.
Paired with a cup of iced coffee or lemonade, the nation can all participate in celebrating National Donut Day.
What is National Donut Day?
National Donut Day was created back in 1938 by the Salvation Army to honor women who provided donuts to soldiers during World War I.
Salvation Army volunteers went to France in 1917 to provide essentials and sweet snacks to spark confidence and hope for those fighting for our country.
Ever since then, sweet donuts were considered an icon of hope and solace for Americans, as reported by Cision PR Newswire.
"The donut is a longstanding symbol of the hope and help that The Salvation Army provides during times of hardship," shared National Commander of The Salvation Army Commissioner Kenneth Hodder.

"Every year, we look forward to celebrating this sweet holiday and honoring the brave work of our Doughnut Lassies on the front lines."
"National Donut Day lets us reflect on 'donuts that do good,' and makes these treats taste even sweeter," continued Commissioner Hodder.
First started as a fundraising event for Chicago's Salvation Army, it is still celebrated today after 84 years of tradition.
When is National Donut Day?
National Donut Day falls on every first Friday of June. In 2022, the day landed on June 3.
