National Donut Day 2024: Here's where to save some 'dough' on donuts

On National Donut Day 2024, here's a look at some of the places around the country where a person can save some dough on the purchase of a donut.

Friday, June 7, 2024, is National Donut Day, a celebration of one of America's favorite pastries. 

Here's how donut shops around the country are observing the occasion — and where to score a free (or discounted) treat or two.

These promotions may not be offered at all locations, so check individual shops for details.

Additionally, the chain will be dropping a new line of "donut-inspired merch" on its website and will be releasing a new video featuring singer Jelly Roll, it said. 

"National Donut Day is a special day for us because it’s all about celebrating that love and obsession," Beth Turenne, Dunkin's vice president of category management, said in the release.

"Plus, we get to share that joy by giving away millions of free donuts," she added.

More than just a chance to score free (or cheaper) doughnuts, National Donut Day has a storied history dating back to World War I. 

"National Donut Day has been celebrated for 85 years thanks to the country’s largest nongovernmental social service provider," the Salvation Army said in a 2023 press release, noting the day is observed each year on the first Friday in June.

The release continued, "Some people may not know that when they’re eating a donut on the first Friday of June each year, it’s more than simply a food holiday: It’s a recognition of selfless volunteers who serve people in need."

Those volunteers, known as "Donut Lassies," were young women who served thousands of donuts each day to American troops in World War I. 

The donuts were "a taste of home" for the American soldiers on the battlefield, according to the Salvation Army, and provided a much-needed morale boost.
