Salvation Army Today – Minnesota History Museum Donut Day
As part of the centennial remembrance of the United States’ entry into World War I, and the beginning of when Salvation Army Donut Girls began serving U.S. soldiers on the front lines. The Salvation Army partnered with the Minnesota Historical Society on June 2, 2017 – Donut Day. Historically dressed Donut Girls were on site to teach people about the history of Donut Day and how The Salvation Army continues to serve in communities. Local artist David Geister also painted a “Donut Girl” which he completed in a couple of hours on site.
