For the vast majority of us, our role in flattening the curve is simple: stay indoors and practice good social distancing. But while you're doing your job (i.e. learning Tik Tok dances, baking sourdough bread, and playing the Nintendo Switch six feet apart from others), our healthcare professionals and first responders are out there fighting on the frontlines.
There aren't enough free carbs in the world to thank them for their part, but Krispy Kreme is hoping a dozen donuts will at least get our message of gratitude across. Between March 30, aka National Doctors' Day, and the end of National Nurses Week (which runs May 6 through May 12) the sugary dough ring maker is giving away dozens of free original glazed donuts to healthcare professionals.
"Just go to a Krispy Kreme drive-thru, tell us what you need and show us your employer badge. That’s it," the company said in a statement Thursday. "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."
