National Doughnut Day was created by the Salvation Army in Chicago, 1938 as a fund raiser during the Great Depression. It also highlighted the service of the “Lassies” of World War 1 who were 250 female Salvation volunteers that went to Europe with the American troops to serve the soldiers doughnuts and remind them somewhat of the comforts of home and what they were fighting for

The same actions were repeated during World War 2 by the Red Cross volunteers called “Dollies”.
