SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA (Sep 3, 2019) – Dunkin’, America’s all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, is once again partnering with local law enforcement to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics Southern California on September 12.
Law enforcement agencies throughout Southern California will stake out on Dunkin’ rooftops to rally supporters and Dunkin’ customers to donate to Special Olympics Southern California. Those who donate will receive a coupon for a free medium coffee on their next visit. On September 12 from 6 – 10 a.m., over 300 members of law enforcement at a total of 71 locations across Southern California will participate in the annual Cop on a Rooftop event. The list of participating locations can be found at www.sosc.org/dogoodwithdunkin.
Cop on a Rooftop is hosted by the Law Enforcement Torch Run, the largest grassroots fundraising and awareness group for Special Olympics. Learn more about LETR at www.sosc.org/letr.
“We invite people to come out and show their support for Special Olympics Southern California and the athletes,” said Deputy Chief Blake Chow of LAPD. “Officers love working with community members and businesses to support inspiring, life-changing causes like Special Olympics. Thank you to Dunkin’ for their unwavering support.”
Funds raised will help Special Olympics Southern California provide year-round sports, health, and leadership programs for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
“Special Olympics Southern California is proud to continue its partnership with local law enforcement and Dunkin’,” said Bill Shumard, President and CEO of Special Olympics Southern California. “In two years, we have increased the number of participating Dunkin’ locations by 45 – a true testament to the continued work and dedication our partners. We look forward to further growing this proud partnership with Dunkin’ for years to come.”
