National Donut Day is coming this Friday.  If you love donuts (and who doesn't?), this is your chance to get some great deals.

It's the first Friday in June.  We all get to celebrate the fried deliciousness that is the donut.  Some people spell it doughnut, some spell it donut.  Either way, it's delicious.

The story goes that in 1917 during World War I, a group called the Salvation Army Lassies (ladies of the Salvation Army) went to Europe and served donuts to the troops on the front lines to help raise morale.

They even cooked some of the donuts in oil in the helmets of some of the soldiers.

National Donut Day was created in 1938 to honor those ladies.

Today, it's much easier to get one and they can boost your morale every day of the week.  But according to WIVB, it's only on Donut Day that you get deals like these ones...
