Krispy Kreme Doughnuts looks to bring smiles to others, especially those who are taking care of us, during the difficult time America and the rest of the world is facing due to the coronavirus outbreak.

To show its appreciation for the healthcare community, the doughnut chain is providing free doughnuts to healthcare workers. Beginning Monday, March 30 on National Doctors’ Day, and on every subsequent Monday through National Nurses Week (May 6-12), Krispy Kreme will provide all healthcare workers free dozens of its Original Glazed Doughnuts.

Healthcare workers can simply go to a Krispy Kreme drive-thru and show an employer badge to pick up free dozens on the way to work for their colleagues, or on the way home to family after a long shift.

Krispy Kreme also wants to connect people practicing social distancing. To help its customers share joy with their neighbors, the chain will add a free dozen Original Glazed Doughnuts to every pick-up, drive-thru, and delivery order that includes a full price dozen Original Glazed Doughnuts or more, on Saturdays beginning March 28.

Krispy Kreme is encouraging customers to put a smile on a neighbor's face by giving them the free dozen. Each free dozen will include a special smiley-face doughnut to make it a “Be Sweet Dozen.” 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.
