ST. LOUIS (KTVI) - The students of JazzU at Jazz St. Louis will help honor the Donut Lassies of the early 20th century.
National Donut Day was started by the Salvation Army during The Great Depression to feature the agency's social service programs. Donuts were also given to World War I soldiers in France to remind them of home.
At National Donut Day 2015, 15 local bakeries will feature donuts, Oberweis Home Delivery will drop off much-needed milk, and Mississippi Mud Roasters will have the coffee. There will also be kids activities and a donut taste-test competition.
