The Salvation Army is giving away donuts at the Timms Community Centre on June 2 — and they’re doing it to commemorate the sacrifices made by both men and women during the First World War.
This year marks the 100th Anniversary of The Salvation Army Doughnut Lassies courageously serving soldiers on the frontlines in France.
In recognition of their commitment and in honour of Canada’s veterans, The Salvation Army plans to give a “taste” of the compassion, hope and joy that servicemen and women experienced so long ago.
So, during the noon hour rush, Krispy Kreme doughnuts will be handed out to visitors to the Timms Community Centre.
“We don’t want people to forget the sacrifices made by our veterans,” says Col. Brian Venables of The Salvation Army. “And although this is a small gesture, it is another reminder that they have and still make a commitment to protect us every day.”
