Cops on Doughnut Shops raise money for Special Olympics
February 24, 2006
Albany -- There are lots of jokes about cops and doughnut shops. So cops have decided to cash in on them, for a good cause.
This is Cops on Doughnut Shops weekend in Georgia. In Albany, Dougherty County Police and Sheriff's Deputies will spend the weekend at the Krispy Kreme on North Slappey in Albany.
The Cops are raising money for Special Olympics through their law enforcement torch run. Dougherty County Police Lt. Jason Hager said "It's such a good cause. We enjoy raising money for the children, the special olympics children. All the money we raise goes straight to Special Olympics Georgia."
Dougherty County Sheriff's Office Captain Kevin Sproul said "Everybody needs to come by. And no matter what they give, it all goes straight, one hundred percent to the Special Olympics."
Their goal is to raise at least five thousand dollars. The Dougherty County Police and Sheriff's Deputies will be above the Krispy Kreme until 6 O-clock Sunday night.
