National Doughnut Day deals and freebies

It’s a hole-y occasion: National Doughnut Day is here, and some local stores are offering free goodies and deals to celebrate.

National Doughnut Day was started in 1938 by the Salvation Army in Chicago.

It honors the women named “Doughnut Girls” who delivered tasty treats and assistance to the troops during World War I — all while dodging bombs on the battlefield.
