The first Friday in June is always reserved for a delicious donut...or several.

It's National Donut Day!  And it's not just some silly made-up holiday to sell more donuts.  The Salvation Army started it in 1938 to honor the women who handed out donuts to soldiers during World War One.  The morale-boosting attempt goes back about 80 years...and still does the trick today.

Here are some deals around WNY to celebrate.
