Ready for some joe this morning? Drive by a Dunkin Donuts and there just might be a guy named Joe on the roof, and he'll be a police officer collecting donations for Special Olympics.
The Niles Police Department and Park Ridge Police Department, in conjunction with the Illinois Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run, are conducting the Dunkin Donuts “Cop on Top” Event today from 5:00 a.m. to 2 p.m.
In 2010 over $207,000 was raised at over 111 locations state-wide to benefit the Illinois Special Olympics, Niles police said.
Check out the action at Dunkin Donuts locations at:
- 7039 W. Dempster, Niles
- 7525 N. Harlem, Niles
- 7235 N. Caldwell, Niles
- 2606 Dempster, Park Ridge
Everyone who visits the Cop on Top Rooftop Stakeout Store and makes a donation to the Torch Run will receive a free donut. People who donate at least $10 will also receive a Law Enforcement Torch Run Travel Mug and coupon for free coffee.
