Sublime Doughnuts’ “Doughnations” Hit a Sweet Spot for The Salvation Army on National Doughnut Day June 3

Sublime Doughnuts are doubly good on National Doughnut Day, Friday, June 3. Each doughnut purchase – at either the Midtown or North Druid Hills shop – adds to the “doughnation” Sublime will send to The Salvation Army in honor of the sweet holiday.

Backstory: The idea for 
Doughnut Day developed during World War I when The Salvation Army workers served coffee and doughnuts to American soldiers fighting in France as a means of bringing them cheer (and taking their minds off poor rations). The Salvation Army volunteers fried the doughnuts in soldiers’ helmets! The Salvation Army then founded National Doughnut Day during the Great Depression to raise funds and awareness for the organization’s social service programs. The doughy story rings true and close to the heart of Sublime Doughnuts owner Kamal Grant, a Navy veteran who served as a baker on the USS John Young. The icing? You’re in for a treat, whether choosing one A-Town Cream or a dozen Yin Yang Twists on June 3, and you’ll be helping The Salvation Army fulfill its manifesto of “Doing the Most Good.”
