Help Support Special Olympics by Donating at Cop on Top Event
For the past 10 years, police officers from throughout the state have staked out Dunkin’ Donuts rooftops to heighten awareness and raise donations for the Law Enforcement Torch Run to benefit Illinois Special Olympics.
Illinois Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities by giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
In return for the police officers doing time at their stores, Dunkin’ Donuts will donate to the Torch Run fund. Everyone who visits the Elmhurst “Cop on Top” event between 5 a.m. and noon Friday, June 01, and makes a donation to the Torch Run receives a free donut. People who donate $5 will receive a pin, and those who donate $15 will have the choice of a T-shirt or hat while supplies last.
Members of the Elmhurst Police Department and the Elmhurst Citizen’s Police Academy Alumni Association will be accepting donations at two Dunkin’ Donuts locations in Elmhurst: 506 W. North Ave. and 195 E. Butterfield Road.
Last year, the Elmhurst Police Department raised $7,151.71 for Illinois Special Olympics. Please help us surpass that amount this year by making a donation. If you are unable to make it to Dunkin' Donuts that day, donations are accepted at the Elmhurst Police Department, Attn: Officer Matt McCollum, 125 E. First Street, Elmhurst, IL 60126. Please make checks payable to Special Olympics Illinois.

More About Dunkin Donuts
The local Dunkin Donuts is a quick stop for customers who are passing through the connected shopping center. It reopened two years ago, changing from a Dunkin Donuts and Baskin Robbins location to strictly a Dunkin Donuts location. Currently, coffee beats out the glazed doughnut as the most popular item.
