Cops on Doughnut Shops raises money for Special Olympics

TAMPA – Tampa Police officers dangled buckets from Krispy Kreme's rooftop Thursday morning to collect donations for Special Olympics Florida.

Chief Jane Castor joined Chad the horse as he walked through the drive-thru for his customary jelly doughnut.

The money raised will go to Special Olympics Florida.

This was the 8th Annual Cops on Doughnut Shops. Officers reel down buckets to customers who donate $1 or more to the cause and get free doughnuts on their next visit.

Money raised during the three-day event is used to help athletes with intellectual disabilities participate in Olympic-style sporting events during the summer.

The games will be played at Disney's Wide World of Sports this May.
