Celebrate National Donut Day with Entenmann's and The Salvation Army! with #giveaway

Disclosure: I received product coupons and a tote (the same items to be given away to a lucky winner). All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



The Facebook Giveaway

June 5, 2015 is National Donut Day. That is a holiday my family and I can really get behind and support. ;) Originally founded by the Salvation Army to honor those in military service, Entenmann's is helping to celebrate this year by featuring their new Rich Frosted Patriotic Donut Eight Pack. They are also hosting a "National Donut Day-Free Donuts for a Year" contest on Facebook. The cause is still to honor the men and women who serve our country, and Bimbo Bakeries will donate $1 to the Salvation Army (up to $30,000) for each entry received through their Facebook page.

100 Grand Prize winners will receive one year's worth of free donuts. There will also be weekly prizes of coupons and plush toys awarded. All entries must be received by 11:50 EST, July 3rd, 2015.

Entenmann's new Rich Frosted Patriotic Donuts are now in stores everywhere!

Entenmann's All-American, New Rich Frosted Patriotic Donut

The new Rich Frosted Patriotic Donut Eight Pack combines the fan favorite (and my favorite!) Rich Frosted Donuts with red, white, and blue sprinkles. They will hit the shelves this month (May) so as to be ready for the big event. The information for the sweepstakes will be printed on the package. It will also be printed on the Entenmann's Rich Frosted and Crumb Donuts Eight Packs.

National Donut Day’s Freshly Baked History 

The holiday was established by The Salvation Army in 1938 in Chicago to honor the “Donut Lassies”, who served these treats to soldiers during World War I, and to help raise needed funds during the Great Depression. The donuts became synonymous with The Salvation Army, as well as the American soldiers who were returning home with the nickname, “doughboys.” This significant occasion established the donut as a long-standing symbol of the services The Salvation Army continues to provide. Today, The Salvation Army continues to provide meals, including donuts, and numerous other services to clients who visit Salvation Army programs daily.


National Donut Day Fun Facts

  • National Donut Day commemorates the “donut lassies,” female Salvation Army volunteers who provided writing supplies, stamps, clothes-mending and home-cooked meals, and of course, donuts, for soldiers on the front lines.
  • With limited resources, these treats were fried, only seven at a time. The Salvation Army’s Ensign Margaret Sheldon and Adjutant Helen Purviance cleverly thought of frying donuts in soldiers’ helmets. Approximately 250 Salvation Army volunteers provided assistance to American soldiers, in France, starting in 1917 during WWI.
  • Now in its 150th anniversary year, The Salvation Army is located in more than 120 countries worldwide. In 2014, nearly 30 million Americans received assistance from The Salvation Army's over 3,500 officers, 60,700 employees and 3.5 million volunteers.
  • With donut bakeries in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Fort Worth, Texas and Montebello, California, Entenmann’s produces more than 780 million donuts a year, 15 million donuts a week and more than 100,000 donuts every hour to keep up with the demands of Entenmann’s donut lovers nationwide.
  • The Rich Frosted Donut has been the #1 seller since its introduction in 1973.

I don't eat donuts often, but national donut day seems like a great reason to indulge!

Elephant's Child said...

How amazing. Our Salvation Army has no links to donuts that I am aware of. And I rarely indulge.
A good cause though.
