Officers from San Antonio-area law enforcement agencies will occupy the rooftop of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, located at 12328 IH-10 West, during “Cops on Top” on Friday, April 8 from 6:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics Texas (SOTX).
Patrons are encouraged to grab their morning coffee and breakfast during those hours and tip local police officers for their dedicated effort to support SOTX athletes. All proceeds from Cops on Top will go on to provide programming for nearly 10,400 SOTX athletes in the San Antonio area.
Contributions can be made via cash, check or credit card. For more information, contact Anna Twitty (firstname.lastname@example.org) at 210.530.9898.
