Plenty of people have grabbed a dozen or two on the way to the beach or a box to take home, but now satisfying your sweet tooth at Allie’s Donuts in North Kingstown could put customers at odds with the Catholic faith.

Bishop Thomas Tobin of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence took to Twitter to call out Allie’s for allegedly supporting Planned Parenthood.

“We’re hearing reports that Allie’s Donuts in North Kingston is currently collecting funds for Planned Parenthood. If true, it’s an unfortunate decision. Catholics, and others concerned about protecting human life, might want to buy their donuts elsewhere.”

Allie’s is closed on Tuesdays, but the business told us by email: “Here at Allie’s Donuts, Since February 2022, each month, one of our employees picks a charity to be added to that month’s donation choices. Our customers have an option to donate at checkout if they so wish. The donation option chosen by one of the employees for May 2022 was Planned Parenthood.”

What such a nonsensical business decision making! Never elect an ardently divisive issue for a business banner. Does the management of Allie’s Donuts have adequate internal control?
