High school and college seniors are having a different sort of graduation experience this year, so Krispy Kreme is trying to help them celebrate.

Graduating seniors will have the chance to get a “Graduate Dozen” box of donuts for free on March 19, according to USA Today.

“We feel for all of the high school and college seniors,” Dave Skena, Chief Marketing Officer for Krispy Kreme, said in a press release according to People magazine. “We wish they had that moment of walking across the stage and getting their diploma. We can’t replace that … but we thought we could help them safely have a little fun and enjoy a special ‘Graduate Dozen’ on us.”

The “Graduate Dozen” comes with a variety of donut flavors, including chocolate iced, strawberry iced and yellow iced, according to Krispy Kreme’s website.

In order to get the free donuts, the graduating student must come into a participating Krispy Kreme location with at least one of the following, according to their website:

  • Cap and gown with a 2020 tassel
  • T-shirt, sweatshirt, or other apparel that says “Class of 2020”
  • 2020 letterman jacket that features senior status
  • 2020 class ring
  • Graduation announcement with name and matching ID
  • Student photo ID that features senior status
  • Other “Class of 2020” senior swag

The “Graduate Dozen” will also be available to buy during the week of May 18-24 at participating Krispy Kreme locations.
