Friday is National Doughnut Day. Here’s where you can get one for free

Dunkin' Donuts, Cumberland Farms your best bets

There aren’t many things better than a free doughnut.

Friday is National Doughnut Day, and a few chains are offering free pastries to patrons. Make sure to stop by and claim your free treat.

National Doughnut Day was started in Chicago in 1938 to honor The Salvation Army “Doughnut Girls.” As support for World War I soldiers, volunteers traveled overseas to give soldiers clothes supplies and baked goods. The “Doughnut Lassies” who served doughnuts to the troops are credited with popularizing the sweet treat in the U.S., according to the Salvation Army.

Dunkin’ Donuts: Enjoy a free doughnut with the purchase of any beverage. The offer is good all day at participating locations.

Cumberland Farms: From 5 to 10 a.m. get a free doughnut with purchase of any dispensed beverage, which includes hot or iced coffee, fountain or frozen beverages. Only valid at “new concept” and remodeled stores, which you can find by searching here.
