‘Cops on a Rooftop’ at Dunkin’ Donuts Friday for Special Olympics
If you drive on Broadway around 26th Street in Quincy this Friday morning don’t be alarmed to find police officers standing on the roof of the Dunkin' Donuts building. They will be there to support Special Olympics. For the 16th year in a row, law enforcement personnel from around the State of Illinois will be staking out rooftops at various Dunkin' Donut sites including the one in Quincy at 2602 Broadway.
This will actually mark the 2nd year for the Quincy Police Department’s involvement with this state-wide project. Officers from the Q.P.D. will be on the Dunkin' Donuts roof from 5 a.m. to 12 noon helping to raise money for the Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run to benefit Special Olympics. They hope to top the state-wide total of $700-thousand from 272 rooftops from last year. Dunkin' Donuts will donate $15-thousand to the cause as well.
Each guest at Dunkin' Donuts who makes a donation to the “Cop on a Rooftop” project will receive a free donut coupon and anyone who donate at least $10 will get a free Law Enforcement Torch Run mug (while supplies last) and a free medium coffee as well.
