ALTOONA, Pa., June 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Friday June 5th is National Donut Day, and Sheetz will celebrate by offering free donuts to loyalty card holders, at all locations, while supplies last.
National Donut Day is celebrated the first Friday of June each year. It was established in 1938 to pay tribute to the women who, as part of the Salvation Army, served donuts to soldiers during World War I. In 2009, both independent donut shops and large national franchises offered free donuts in the United States.
Sheetz is proud to participate in National Donut Day to honor its rich history and also to celebrate the tremendous growth of the Shweetz® Bakery line in the past few years. The line includes a variety of donuts, muffins, and other baked goods, freshly made and delivered to stores daily. Sheetz serves many kinds of glazed, frosted, and filled donuts, including our new seasonal donut, the Orange Dreamsicle.
