Hurts Donut Company announces National Donut Day charity partnership

May 28, 2021

Hurts Donut Company is partnering with The Warrior’s Journey for National Donut Day. The charity will receive 10% of National Donut Day sales from each Hurts Donut location on June 4.

“National Donut Day was established in 1938 by The Salvation Army,” Tim Clegg, Founder and CEO of Hurts Donut Company, said. “The original intent of NDD was to provide donuts to servicemembers overseas to give them a taste of home. We decided at our founding that we would carry on the spirit of the origin by supporting those who protect us every day.”

The Warrior’s Journey is an interactive online community and service provider for military members, veterans, and their families. You can find out more about The Warriors Journey at their website.

National Donut Day is Friday, June 4. Customers can enjoy more than 70 varieties of delicious specialty donuts and have an opportunity to donate money to The Warrior’s Journey to maximize the impact of the day’s fundraiser.

Based in Springfield and launched in the Downtown neighborhood, Hurts Donut Company is a trendy donut shop and bakery that leads the industry in off-the-wall donut creations and trending social media marketing concepts and video posts.

Hurts Donut Company currently operates in 11 states, including Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas, Texas, Colorado, Wisconsin, Louisiana, and Arizona. You can learn more about Hurts Donut Company and franchising at
