Doughnut Day – Salvation Army
June 7 @ 11:30 am - 4:30 pm
Did you know June 7, 2019 is National Doughnut Day? The first Friday in June marks this tradition that celebrates The Salvation Army’s work during WWI. To boost morale, Salvation Army “Lassies” cooked doughnuts for the troops on the front lines.
These young ladies were the only women outside of the military personnel allowed on the front lines. As the doughnuts gained popularity, rumours arose of pilots even dropping notes asking for doughnuts!
Since then, the doughnuts have become a symbol of The Salvation Army’s long history of caring for, and providing dignity to, those who come to them in their darkest hours.
We invite you to join the celebration and enjoy a free doughnut at one of locations below:

11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. at The Alberta Legislature, Assembly road
