Donuts and cops team up for charity

Dunkin’ Donuts will team up with the Law Enforcement Torch Run to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics athletes with a rooftop sit-in at participating Dunkin’ Donuts locations in Western New York.


On Friday, Rochester-area law enforcement officers will take to the roofs of several Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. for “Cops on Top” to benefit Special Olympics New York. Members of the community are invited to attend the sit-in to support the officers, visit with Special Olympics athletes and their families and make donations to Special Olympics New York.


Dunkin’ Donuts will offer guests a coupon for a free coffee or donut as a thank you when they make a monetary donation to the Special Olympics New York at participating restaurants: 300 Monroe Ave. and 1500 Mount Hope Ave.


Dunkin’ Donuts will also offer additional thank-you gifts for donations, including an official Cops on Top T-shirt with a $25 donation; one pound of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee for a $50 donation; and two pounds of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee for a $100 donation.


The events help support nearly 56,000 Special Olympics athletes throughout the state. For more information, visit
