    Come out and help us celebrate National Donut Day, a day started by The Salvation Army in honor of the Donut Lassies who served donuts and provided care to US soldiers during WWI.

    We will be partnering with Krispy Kreme and Little Lucy’s who will provide free donuts from 10 AM – 1 PM! We will host donut-themed activities including a donut obstacle course ending with a fresh glaze and sprinkling! We will also have donut games, photo ops, lounging, as well as face painting, temporary tattoos and door prizes!

    The event is free to the public and we will be accepting donations toward our wraparound services. We can’t wait to see you out there!
