INGLEWOOD (CBSLA.com) — Customers who pledged to save water on Tuesday received a free doughnut as part of an advertising campaign being held at Randy’s Donuts in Inglewood.
From 7 a.m to 9 a.m., anyone who visited the store, located in the 800 block of West Manchester Boulevard, received a free doughnut along with information about water conservation.
The event was part of the Metropolitan Water District’s “Take A Turn” advertising campaign, which urged the public to turn off their hoses and water spouts to battle against the ongoing drought conditions here in Southern California.
The iconic giant doughnut on top of the store was transformed to look like one of the red faucet handles that was used in the agency’s campaign.
Officials explained this is the second time that the shop has covered the doughnut in 62 years.
The first time occurred in 2014, when it was turned into a giant L.A. Kings hockey puck.
