Krispy Kreme giving free doughnuts to doctors, nurses, healthcare workers

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Krispy Kreme is giving back to doctors, nurses and other health care professionals working during the coronavirus pandemic, WTVD reported.

Monday is National Doctor’s Day and the company said any doctor, nurse or health care worker can bring their employee ID and pick up as many dozens of glazed doughnuts as they need.

The promotion will happen every Monday through May 6, which is National Nurses Week, according to the company.

“Taking care of ourselves and each other never has been more important. Getting through this together by staying apart seems unnatural,” Krispy Kreme wrote in a statement on its website. “But even now ... there can be joy. It can bring and keep us together in this challenging, disruptive time.”

Krispy Kreme also said every Saturday, starting March 28, anyone who buys at least a dozen glazed doughnuts at full price will get a free box of glazed doughnuts.

The company said every free dozen will have an extra smiley-face doughnut inside to help spread cheer and positivity.

“Like everyone in these times, we’re anxious. We’re concerned,” Krispy Kreme said. “We’re also all in this together.”

Doughnuts can only be picked up through any Krispy Kreme drive-thru and most shops across the country are open for order pickup only. Employees will also deliver doughnuts within 10 miles of participating stores, according to the company.
