Friday (June 4) is National Donut Day. This special occasion is celebrated on the first Friday of June of each year in honor of the original event created by The Salvation Army in Chicago in 1938. The aim was to honor fellow Salvation Army members who served doughnuts to soldiers in France during World War I. To uphold the tradition, many of your favorite donut joints, including Dunkin' and Krispy Kreme, will have special sales and deals on National Donut Day. put together a list of all the deals you need to know about:

The shoes feature photos of real donuts found along the Donut Trail. Winners will be selected at random at 3 p.m. on June 4 and will get their choice between a pink or teal pair of these special sneakers.

Chin Up Donuts: If you find yourself in Scottsdale, Arizona on June 4, head to woman-owned Chin Up Donuts in the Promenade where their mission is to spread positivity with rings of dough.
