Police officers from
the Westminster Police Department and Troopers from the Maryland State Police
(Westminster Barrack) will collect donations for Special Olympics Maryland on
the rooftop of the Westminster Dunkin’ Donuts this weekend.
As part of a national fundraising effort for Special Olympics, Chief Jeff Spaulding of the Westminster Police Department and Captain Jim DeWees and Lieutenant Pat McCrory of the Maryland State Police, have volunteered to spend the weekend on the roof of Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant in Westminster (140 Shopping Center on Route 140). Their collective fundraising goal is $6,000 and they have vowed that they will not come down until all of that money has been collected.
In 2012, seven Police Department participated and raised more than $40,000. This year five Dunkin’ Donuts locations across the state will take part in the program: Laurel, Hyattsville, College Park, California (MD) and Westminster, according to a news release.
Along with law enforcement volunteers who will be on the rooftop, other officers and Special Olympics Athletes will greet customers inside and outside of the store, passing around donation jars and rallying support for this great cause. Check out the fun Saturday, Sept. 21 through Sunday, Sept. 22.
