Sweet taste of charity



Tampa police Cpl. Ellen Schantz takes Red through the Krispy Kreme drive-through for a cinnamon apple-filled doughnut as Chief Jane Castor looks on during the Cops on Doughnut Shops fundraiser on Thursday. Officers on the rooftop of the store on Kennedy Boulevard lowered buckets with coupons into the drive-through lane for customers to put in their donations to the Special Olympics. Officers also accepted donations at doorways. With a $1 donation, customers received a glazed doughnut. With a donation of $20 or more, they got a dozen glazed doughnuts. The fundraiser continues through Saturday in Tampa and St. Petersburg.
