Free doughnuts!

If you have to abandon your summer diet for one day, this should be it.

Celebrate National Doughnut Day (June 1), by visiting Krispy Kreme, where customers can receive a free doughnut of their choice.

National Doughnut Day was established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army. It was designed to raise funds during the Great Depression and honor Salvation Army volunteers.

Among the many participating locations is the Krispy Kreme at 6761 Veterans Parkway in Columbus. Call 706-320-2124.
