Cops on the Coop
This fall, local law enforcement agencies will team up with local Chick-Fil-A® restaurants for a fundraising event to benefit the 23,000+ athletes with intellectual disabilities that make up Special Olympics Virginia.
Officers will stand on rooftops to wave customers in and stand ready at drive-thru’ s to accept donations from Chick-Fil-A guests.
When: September 23rd through September 27th
Where: At participating Chick-Fil-A stores. Click HERE to find the store nearest you.
Law enforcement in Virginia have taken their longtime support of Special Olympics Virginia to new heights – literally. As a part of the annual month-long Hardee’s fundraiser for Special Olympics Virginia, where customers who buy a $1 paper star pinup can receive a sheet good for big savings on specific Hardee’s menu items, Virginia law enforcement will camp out on the roof of several Hardee’s locations throughout the course of one day to encourage donations.
2018 was the inaugural year of the Cops-On-Rooftops event in Virginia, and with just three Hardee’s locations participating last year, LETR was able to help Hardee’s reach their $100,000 fundraising goal for the first time ever! Even more agencies across Virginia are expecting to join in on the rooftop fun this fall, so be on the lookout at your local Hardee’s for a cop waving to you from their rooftop!
