When it comes to donuts Krispy Kreme are the best in taste and in giving back to the community. Another round of kudos for Krispy Kreme!

I've never been a Krispy Kreme donut fan, but for a corporation to not only not go ballistic, but help someone who obviously isn't facing a great future, is wonderful! Thanks for the post.
