RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- The Salvation Army and Doughboy's in Reno are celebrating National Donut Day this Friday, teaming up with free donuts and a food drive.

Customers will receive one free glazed donut for each can of food donated and can receive up to six free donuts in exchange for six cans of non-perishable food. Donations are being accepted at both Doughboy's locations: 5115 Mae Anne Ave. in northwest Reno and 57 Damonte Ranch Pkwy. in south Reno.

National Donut Day, held annually the first Friday in June, was established in 1938. During World War I, women serving in the Salvation Army, referred to as "donut girls," would serve these treats to US soldiers. The American infantrymen were commonly referred to as "doughboys."
