LaMar’s Donuts is participating in National Doughnut Day on Friday.

Friday is National Doughnut Day and a few local doughnut shops are celebrating with freebies.

National Doughnut Day was dreamed up by The Salvation Army in 1938 as  a way to pay tribute to people who’d served in World War I. It’s been around ever since and is celebrated on the first Friday in June.

In Wichita, Krispy Kreme at 7777 E. Central will give away one free doughnut of choice to each customer on Friday. Both the Flying Donuts at 4618 E. Central and LaMar”s Donuts, which has Wichita locations at 3130 N. Rock Road, 3301 E. Harry and 10051 W. 21st St. N. also are participating, offering one free doughnut (as long as it has a hole in it) to each customer. No purchase is necessary for any of the free doughnut offers.
