Did you know donuts gained popularity during World War I, when the Salvation Army cooked the sweet treat for the soldiers who were in the trenches?

Armed with a helmet, rolling pins and donut supplies, the Donut Lassies provided the soldiers a piece of home from the trenches of eastern France, said Lt. Col. Ward Matthews, national community relations and development secretary for The Salvation Army. Bakemark and its donut shop customers - who make some of the most creative and delicious donuts as seen on our table here -have donated more than $100,000 from their Donut Day Events for The Salvation Army in Southern California.
