From the battlegrounds of war to the front lines of the County’s hospital, the Salvation Army is known for giving hope in a time of crisis.

The Salvation Army offered up a sweet treat to staff at Quinte Health Care Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital with a delivery of freshly baked donuts from Lakeshore Farms in Wellington.

In recognition of National Donut Day, Salvation Army groups were delivering donuts to essential frontline workers across the country to show appreciation.

Annually celebrated on the first Friday of June, National Donut Day was established in 1938 to honour The Salvation Army’s “Donut Lassies,” who served these delicious treats to the forces during the First World War. The Salvation Army also served enlisted soldiers with baked goods, provided them with writing supplies and stamps, and also clothes-mending services.
