To kick off Pride Month in June, California-based Randy’s Donuts has launched its new inclusive Pride Flag Donuts, raised donuts topped with vanilla icing and inclusive pride flag color drizzles.
During the entire month of June, Randy’s Donuts will sell Pride Flag Donuts (priced $2.85-$2.95/each) and rainbow merchandise (socks, t-shirts and baseball caps) at all of its locations and is donating proceeds from each store to local LGBTQ+ centers in each of its markets.
The donut shop’s Torrance and El Segundo locations will support the South Bay LGBTQ Center, the Costa Mesa location will support the LGBTQ Center Orange County, the Pasadena location will support the San Gabriel Valley LGBTQ Center and the Inglewood and Downey locations will support the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
Additionally, Randy’s Donuts’ El Segundo location will be designated as a donation drop-off location for Christopher Street West LA Pride’s Pride Makes A Difference campaign in partnership with Big Sunday – a 30-day calendar of events focused on volunteering, community service and opportunities to donate time, goods and money to worthy causes that benefit the LGBTQ+ community. Donated items for collection include non-perishable food, hygiene supplies, new socks, new underwear and new footwear. The donation bin will be available June 4-30 during store operation hours only.
“Randy’s Donuts has been a proud community member run as a family business for over 60 years and we make it a priority to support our family (employees and customers alike) with our actions, and donuts” says Mark Kelegian, owner of Randy’s Donuts. “We encourage everyone during Pride Month to support our city’s LGBTQ+ family by donating goods and supplies at our El Segundo location, or with a purchase of a Pride Flag Donut so we can help local LGBTQ centers better serve our communities together.”
