The Springfield Police Department is teaming up with Dunkin’ to raise money for Special Olympics Missouri Friday with the “Cop on a Rooftop” event from 5 a.m. to noon.
You can donate to Special Olympics Missouri and receive a free donut. If you donate more than $10 you receive a free mug and coffee coupon.
“The Missouri Law Enforcement Torch Run is excited to partner with Dunkin’ to help raise awareness about the amazing things Special Olympics accomplishes for people with intellectual disabilities,” Jim Moran, Missouri Law Enforcement Torch Run State Director, said in a statement. “This partnership will assist law enforcement in its never-ending desire to raise funds so that each and every Missouri resident, both young and old, with intellectual disabilities, will be able to enjoy a life of joy and success through the athletic training and competition offered by Special Olympics Missouri. Dunkin’ knows the rewards Special Olympics provides for our fellow citizens and joins law enforcement in an exciting new endeavor here in Missouri to enlist your support. Come out on May 17 to partner with Dunkin’ and your local law enforcement officers to raise much-needed funds for Special Olympics Missouri.”
The goal of the Springfield PD and other police departments around the state is to raise $20,000 for Special Olympics Missouri.
