National Donut Day!

Chattanooga firefighters benefited from National Donut day today.

About 80 years ago, the Chicago Salvation Army created the tradition to honor women who volunteered in World War II.

It started when volunteers served coffee and donuts to solders as a fundraiser to help those in need.

Today, officials with the Chattanooga Salvation Army visited several stations around town, to share their appreciation to those who serve.

Chattanooga Firefighter Matthew Enyart is appreciative.

“We never know when we’re going to get the call, so we’ve always got to be ready and the donuts will give us much needed energy.”

National Donut Day is celebrated on the first Friday in June.
