We Americans love our donuts. We’ve designated two days each year as National Donut Day, one in June, one in November. Thank the Salvation Army for today’s festivities.
In 1938, the Salvation Army in Chicago named June 3 “National Doughnut Day” to honor their doughnut lassies, who made and sent donuts as a morale booster to overseas soldiers during World War I, under the slogan “doughnuts will win the war!”
Scripture says to “… encourage one another and build each other up …” (1 Thess. 5:11). Whether with a donut, a helping hand, a reassuring word or simply a hug or a smile, we need to encourage one another.
Who needs a donut from you today?
