Krispy Kreme giving free dozens of doughnuts to medical personnel during pandemic

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Krispy Kreme is offering dozens of original glazed doughnuts to healthcare workers free of charge.

The company announced the promotion on Wednesday in a statement published on its website:

“Just go to any Krispy Kreme drive-thru, tell us what you need and show us your employer badge. Pick up some free dozens on the way to work for you and your colleagues, or maybe a free dozen on your way home to family after a long shift.”

Healthcare workers will get free doughnuts every Monday starting on March 30 through the end of National Nurses Week (May 6 – 12).

Krispy Kreme will also be adding a free dozen of original glazed doughnuts to every pick-up, drive-thru and delivery order that includes a full-price dozen original glazed or more. This begins on Saturday, March 28.

If you’re worried about contamination, Krispy Kreme says all of its products will be securely packaged.

“The thousands of free dozens on Saturdays will be securely sealed and bagged individually, along with instructions for contactless drop-off, including social distancing and safety guidelines,” the statement read. “Like everyone in these times, we’re anxious. We’re concerned. We’re also all in this together.”

“Thank you, healthcare workers and everyone supporting them, including our Krispy Kremers, who make a personal commitment every day to share joy. We are grateful for the opportunity to enable the sharing of joy and look forward to seeing millions of smiles!”
