BALTIMORE — It's June 5, which means it's National Donut Day.

So who knows donuts better than Dunkin'?

Anyone purchasing a beverage at Dunkin' on Friday, will get a free donut.

That's right, pick from your favorite classics including Boston Kreme, Glazed, Glazed Chocolate, Jelly Filled, and more.

If you rather donuts be brought to you, then Grubhub might be the way to go. They're giving away six free donuts on Dunkin’ orders of $10 or more through the weekend.

Most Dunkin’ locations are open, however some are only serving drive-thru, carry-out, delivery, and curbside pick-up.

National Donut Day was originally established by the Salvation Army during World War I to provide supplies to troops. The holiday is traditionally celebrated on the first Friday of June.

This year the tradition continues, as the Salvation Army plans to be in Baltimore City, Baltimore, Anne Arundel, and Carroll Counties, delivering 6,000 donuts across 154 Police and Fire Department stations.

Earlier in the week, the Salvation Army gave away over 1,000 bottles of water and masks during the George Floyd protests in Baltimore.
