Several chains will celebrate National Doughnut Day by giving out free doughnuts this Friday, June 7.

According to the Salvation Army, which spells the word “donut,” the holiday was created in 1938 and dates back even further:

“During World War I, Salvation Army ‘Donut Lassies’ served donuts to soldiers. Today, we continue to celebrate their work by delivering the sweet treat to those in need — and to donut lovers across the country.”

The following doughnut shop chains are among those that will hand out the circular pastries for free on Friday, either with or without a purchase.

Call ahead to your nearest locations before running out the door to confirm they are participating in these offers.

1. Cumberland Farms

From 5 to 10 a.m., you can get a free doughnut with the purchase of a Farmhouse Blend hot or iced coffee or a beverage from the Chill Zone, a Cumberland Farms spokesperson tells Money Talks News.

This offer is available at Cumberland Farms’ new and newly remodeled store locations across the Northeast and Florida.

2. Duck Donuts

This chain invites you to come in and select your favorite doughnut for free. By doing so, you might help ensure yourself another free doughnut later in the month. According to Krispy Kreme:

“What’s better than one free doughnut? Two, of course! So, if you can help us give away 1 MILLION doughnuts on National Doughnut Day, we’ll offer another doughnut giveaway later this month. We’ll give you a taste of our newest creation that will be unveiled later in June, for FREE!”
