Freeport, Illinois — What would you think if someone showed up to your place of work or school and merely out of the kindness of their sugar coated heart, brought you some Krispy Kreme Doughnuts? Or say you were just walking down the street and two angels appeared, and in their hands were bags full of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts all just for you?
You’d hug them wouldn’t you.
Turns out, that’s exactly what did happen last week as a fundraiser (a Krispy Kreme fundraiser) didn’t quite arrive at Lincoln-Douglas school the way it was supposed to.
So, Ms. Veronica and Mrs. Piehn of Lincoln-Douglas School (shown above) decided to turn a little harmless flaw into an opportunity to pay it forward to the people of our community.
Loaded up with enough Krispy Kreme’s to feed a small army, the two hopped in their mini-van and took their upside down Krispy Kreme Doughnuts all around town, delivering them to people all over the city.
They delivered Krispy Kreme Doughnuts to office people…
They delivered them to the schools…
They handed Krispy Kreme Doughnuts out to people in the street…
It’s break time!
Everyone everywhere was taking a ‘Krispy Kreme’ break.
A batch of delicious Krispy Kreme Doughnuts made their way to City Hall too! Can’t make good decisions without a Krispy Kreme in your belly.
Everywhere in the city, people were eating Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. It was like Krispy Kreme day.
Our local Firefighters received a big batch as well.
And look at these three men with their Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. That’s happiness you just can’t fake right there.
And of course, no Krispy Kreme surprise delivery would be complete without stopping by the Police Department. Just look at those smiles. Did you know? A Police officer can carry a few extra Krispy Kreme Doughnuts in their pockets while they work too. Apprehend a bad guy —take a bite of a Krispy Kreme Doughnut. It gives them superpowers.
They even delivered a Krispy Kreme Doughnut to this guy, who couldn’t wait to sink his teeth into one. Ah, Krispy Kreme heaven…
We’re not sure if you received a Krispy Kreme Doughnut last week in Freeport, but thanks to a crazy Krispy Kreme delivery driver and the thoughtfulness of two Lincoln-Douglas teachers, a lot of others sure did. What a neat surprise it was.
