Salvation Army of Milwaukee County hosts “Do Good Donut Day”

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County hosted a “Do Good Donut Day” Friday morning.

The Salvation Army served doughnuts to 1,000 veterans at the Milwaukee Veterans Affairs Medical Center as part of National Doughnut Day.

One veteran said the doughnuts were a sweet surprise when he arrived for his appointment.

“I think it’s great, I can’t find the words for it. I think it’s a great gesture,” Art Chiappetta said. "I appreciate it for my breakfast in the morning."

National Doughnut Day was established by the Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the doughnut lassies who served the sugary treat to soldiers during World War I.
