Giveaway: In time for National Donut Day-- Entenmann's Vouchers

Friday, June 1st is the 75th commemoration of National Donut Day and Entenmann's Bakery and The Salvation Army have partnered to celebrate.  A little trivia for you--did you know that in 1938, The Salvation Army began honoring their "Donut Lassies" who served these delicious treats to soldiers during World War I?

Entenmann's Bakery continues to support the Salvation Army and for every "like" on their Facebook Page from April 22-June 23, they will donate $1 to the organization.  So, please visit and like at http://www.facebook.com/entenmanns.  It just takes one click!  Entenmann's hopes too, that you will consider making a donation to your local Salvation Army, who continues to provide meals (including donuts) and numerous other services to clients in need.

In addition, Entenmann's will host a sweepstakes on their Facebook page to win FREE DONUTS for a year and other prizes.  

Entenmann's sent me the following fun trivia facts to share:
75th Annual National Donut Day Fun Facts!
 Entenmann’s Bakery:
 ·         Entenmann’s has made more than 4 billion donuts – if you laid them end-to-end, you could wrap them around the earth almost 9 times!
 ·         The Rich Frosted Donut has been the #1 seller since its introduction in 1972. (2012 marks the 40-Year Anniversary – that’s a sweet celebration!)
·         Entenmann’s Donut Facility in Carlisle, Pennsylvania is the largest Donut Plant in the United States, producing more than 40 million boxes of yummy delight each year!
 ·         Believing that people were more inclined to buy what they can see, the Entenmann’s brothers, William, Robert and Charles, and mother, Martha, invented the familiar “see-through” cake box for baked goods in 1959! 
·         At one time, more than 168 million pounds of chocolate have been used for Entenmann's Rich Frosted Donuts, enough to fill all of the Great Lakes!
·         In the early ’50s, Frank Sinatra used to call the Bay Shore bakery to place weekly orders from Entenmann’s! For more information on the 75th National Donut Day, please visit www.salvationarmyusa.org,  http://www.facebook.com/SalvationArmyUSA,www.entenmanns.com or www.facebook.com/entenmanns. 
 Salvation Army:
 ·         The Salvation Army started National Donut Day during the Great Depression as a way to raise funds and bring awareness to The Salvation Army’s social service programs. 
  ·         National Donut Day commemorates the “donut lassies,” female Salvation Army volunteers who provided writing supplies, stamps, clothes-mending and home-cooked meals, and of course, donuts, for soldiers on the front lines.
 ·         Approximately 250 Salvation Army volunteers provided assistance to American soldiers in France starting in 1917 during WWI!  ·         With limited resources, these treats were fried, only seven at a time. The Salvation Army’s Ensign Margaret Sheldon and Adjutant Helen Purviance cleverly thought of frying donuts in soldiers’ helmets!  ·         Last year, 30 million Americans received assistance from The Salvation Army's 3,600 officers, 60,000 employees and 3.4 million volunteers!
