National Doughnut Day Warmly Welcomed

Ladies and gentlemen, today is National Doughnut Day, so cheer up.

Celebrate with your favorite kind of dough-y goodness.

Starting at 6 a.m. at Merritt's Bakery (locations at 3202 E 15th St., 101st & Riverside, 71st. & Garnett), doughnuts will be served, until they run out.

10 percent of the doughnut proceeds will go to The Salvation Army PLUS.

Salvation Army "lassies" were known to give soldiers hot doughnuts during World War I, and their legacy is honored each year on National Doughnut Day.
