“Cops on Doughnut Shops” Raise Dough for Special Olympics Georgia

You’ve Heard the Jokes About Cops IN Doughnut Shops… Now See Cops ON Doughnut Shops!

WHO: Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc., Special Olympics Georgia and Georgia police officers

WHAT: Krispy Kreme is once again teaming up with Georgia police officers to “raise dough” for the Law Enforcement Torch Run® for Special Olympics Georgia. Officers will take to the roofs for Georgia’s seventh annual “Cops on Doughnut Shops” weekend from 6 a.m. on Friday, May 1 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 3, where they will collect donations from customers as they eat, sleep and play on the rooftops of eleven Georgia Krispy Kreme stores. Customers who donate money to the cause will get a sweet treat in return, ranging from a free Original Glazed doughnut to a complimentary doughnut party for generous corporations, organizations or individuals donating $1,000 or more.
