Houston-Area First Choice ER Facilities to Serve as National Donut Day Giveaway Sites


“Our 102-year-old tradition is still being celebrated across the U.S. thanks to the support from organizations like First Choice Emergency Room,” said Major Kent Davis, The Salvation Army of Greater Houston Area Command. “We are grateful for the support in our efforts to bring awareness to the origin of National Donut Day.”

In 1938 during The Great Depression, The Salvation Army in Chicago started National Donut Day as a fundraiser with a goal to help those in need during the Great Depression. It honors the United States military veterans and commemorates the work of Salvation Army volunteers who used donuts to comfort American soldiers in France and Germany during World War I. Over 80 years later the act of kindness is still celebrated across the U.S.

“We are honored to partner with the Salvation Army to celebrate Donut Day which supports our veterans and Salvation Army volunteers across the nation,” said Steve Bussey, President, Adeptus Health. “We look forward to seeing Houstonians stop by their neighborhood facility to join us in this day of remembrance.”
