Our community showed up in full force, enabling us to make an impactful donation to the Salvation Army. This act of support from our community goes to show how a simple treat like a donut can help make a difference. We’re humbled to play a part in aiding the Salvation Army in their mission to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.”

This event was a reflection of that commitment and the incredible support we’ve received over the years. We believe in giving back to the community that has supported us and helping people in need. We see this donation as a way to extend our gratitude and make a positive impact. Looking forward, we are excited about the opportunity to continue supporting meaningful causes and strengthening our bonds within the community.”
