LOS ANGELES (Oct. 13, 2017) – Dunkin’ Donuts, America’s all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, has challenged law enforcement agencies throughout Southern California to camp out on its roofs in support of the Special Olympics Southern California. On Oct. 27, more than 19 locations across the region will participate in Southern California’s inaugural Cop on a Rooftop event. Guests of Dunkin’ Donuts will be encouraged to donate to the cause and all who take part will receive a coupon for one free medium hot or iced coffee*.
Officers are expected to hit the roofs beginning at 6 a.m. The event will run until 10 a.m. In exchange for spending time at the restaurants, Dunkin’ Donuts will donate $5,000 to Special Olympics Southern California.
