A SWEET TRADITION: In 1938, the Salvation Army created National Donut Day to honor the Salvation Army officers who served doughnuts to U.S. troops during World War I. The doughnut continues to be a symbol of the service it provides to first responders. On June 5, the San Rafael Salvation Army celebrated Donut Day by delivering 69 dozen doughnuts to first responders, including police, firefighters and Coast Guard, at 50 locations around Marin County. Pictured (above) are Lts. David and Diane Shatto, officers of The Salvation Army, delivering doughnuts to Corte Madera Fire Station 13.
SUPPORTING FIRST RESPONDERS: Kentfield Fire Department (above, top) gave a warm welcome to Salvation Army staff, volunteers and advisory board members who delivered doughnuts.
