Make a Pit Stop and Support a Cop

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Give a lot to a cop on top!  Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) members command your presence at Cops on Top, a deliciously fun fundraiser benefitting Special Olympics Texas (SOTX) – San Antonio area athletes.  On April 13, some of San Antonio’s finest will camp out on the roof of Krispy Kreme, located at 12328 IH-10 West.  It’s not part of a stakeout; it’s a chance for SOTX supporters to drop off donations that’ll help local competitors. 

You can spot officers on the rooftop from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on Friday. Contributions can be made via cash, check or credit card during Cops on Top.  It’s an easy way to grab a snack and give back!  For more information, contact Anna Twitty (atwitty@sotx.org) at 210.530.9898.
