Want a free donut? You can get one on Friday.

Regal Bakery’s three Oahu locations, Daylight Donuts’ Lihue location, and Krispy Kreme’s Kahului location are partnering with The Salvation Army – Hawaiian & Pacific Islands Division to provide customers with one free donut while supplies last. A percentage of sales of additional donuts at Regal Bakery and Daylight Donuts during the event will benefit The Salvation Army.

Select Salvation Army stores will also be giving a free donut to customers that stop by.

It’s while supplies last and only for a limited time on Friday.

For those with bigger appetites, all Oahu 7-Eleven locations will offer special extra-large donuts for $3.99 each, with 20 percent of the net proceeds to benefit The Salvation Army.

Donut Day also will be observed at Tripler Army Medical Center in partnership with Disabled American Veterans.

The Salvation Army started National Donut Day 78 years ago as a way to raise funds and bring awareness to their social service programs. Donut Day is held the first Friday of June each year and commemorates “Donut Lassies,” female volunteers for The Salvation Army in World War I, who provided writing supplies, stamps, clothes-mending and home-cooked meals (including donuts) to soldiers on the front lines. The Donut Lassies would fry donuts in the soldiers’ helmets on the front lines…just seven donuts at a time.
