A popular doughnut shop in Maine came under fire over its holiday charity drive for a needy local family — all because it asked the Salvation Army to connect the shop with children who could use warm clothing and presents.

The Holy Donut in Portland noted on its Facebook page that it asked the Salvation Army to provide kids’ ages and sizes. The shop added that it asked customers to contribute in exchange for free doughnuts or a Holy Donut T-shirt and that it figured the whole thing “would be fun and feel great.”
