Taking care of ourselves and each other never has been more important. Getting through this together by staying apart seems unnatural. But even now … there can be joy. It can bring and keep us “together” in this challenging, disruptive time.

At Krispy Kreme, we love bringing smiles to others, especially those who need them the most.

Healthcare Community

To share joy among the millions in the medical community, and to show our gratitude for all they are doing, beginning Monday, March 30 – 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 our iconic Original Glazed® Doughnuts. Just go to a Krispy Kreme drive-thru, tell us what you need and show us your employer badge. That’s it. 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.

Friends and Neighbors

Also, we’re going to help our customers share joy with their neighbors, because being separated doesn't mean we can't be sweet. On Saturdays beginning March 28, Krispy Kreme 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, encouraging customers to put a smile on a neighbor's face by giving them the free dozen. In fact, each free dozen will include a special smiley-face doughnut; we call it our “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.​

While we’ve adjusted hours of operation at shops in some communities to comply with state and/or local government guidelines, most Krispy Kreme shops and drive-thrus in the U.S. are open for pick-up orders. Doughnuts are also available for delivery within 10 miles of participating shops through our website and app, and you can visit KrispyKreme.com for details regarding our Acts of Joy and other updates regarding our response to COVID-19. ​

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! (Help us find you by using #KrispyKreme and tagging @krispykreme.)
