Krispy Kreme Will Give Grads 12 Free Donuts Tomorrow When They Wear Cap And Gown

Seniors will have a reason to wear their cap and gown after all.

2020 has to be a pretty anti-climactic ending for graduating seniors — or climactic depending on how you look at it. In a small, but sweet, gesture, Krispy Kreme is offering gradating seniors a dozen free donuts to pick up tomorrow, May 19, when they wear their graduating entire to pickup.

While the stay-at-home order is still in effect, large social gatherings are off out of the question. Unfortunately, for graduating students, this means foregoing graduation ceremonies.

However, many outstanding and understanding members of the public recognize the significance of this academic milestone, and refuse to let it go overlooked. Whether it’s Barak and Michelle Obama, Oprah in conjunction with celebrities, state members, and nobel prize laureates, or John Krasinski — the world is taking it upon themselves to recognize the excellence of graduating students’ achievement.

Added to that list is Krispy Kreme.

“A new 2020 Graduate Dozen will be available for purchase this week through Sunday, May 24. To sweeten the deal, tomorrow, Tuesday, May 19, seniors can get one 2020 Graduate Dozen FREE by wearing their cap and gown, or providing other Class of 2020 swag proving their senior status, to a Chicagoland Krispy Kreme shop,” the company wrote in a press release.

Grads will be able to choose between 7 of Krispy Kreme’s donut flavors.

To collect your dozen, you have to wear some sort of senior, graduating attire, including:

  • Cap and gown with 2020 tassel
  • Class of 2020 apparel (t-shirt, sweatshirt, etc.)
  • 2020 letterman jacket featuring senior status
  • 2020 class ring
  • Graduation announcement featuring name with matching ID
  • Student photo ID featuring senior status
  • Other Class of 2020 senior swag

This deal is available at Krispy Kreme’s Chicago locations in: Homewood at 17815 South Halsted Street; Evergreen Park at 9150 South Western Avenue; Hillside at 110 South Mannheim Road; and Chicago in Block 37 at 108 North State Street.

When redeeming the free Graduate Dozen, graduates must be physically present. The company maintains that this promotion is not valid through online ordering.

Well grads, your caps and gowns aren’t returnable, might as well put them to use as you collect a dozen tasty treats!
