Today, June 6, is National Donut Day. The day was started in 1938 by the Salvation Army to honor the “Donut Lassies,” women who gave donuts to soldiers during World War I. Entenmann’s teams up with Salvation Army to give out free donuts in Madison Square Park until 3 p.m. today. And you can see a 7-foot replica of a red velvet doughnut too.
