Lexington PD’s “Cops on Coops” for Special Olympics a success

Lexington, SC (Paul Kirby) – Each year, officers from our area’s law enforcement agencies participate in activities intended to help athletes through the SC Special Olympics. To raise funds, they do just about anything that draws people and thus donations for this worthwhile cause.

Last week, officers from the Town of Lexington Police Department, members of their V.I.P. program, and other area agencies participated in “Cops on Coops.” The volunteers positioned themselves at Chick-fil-A Lexington and Chick-fil-A Saluda Pointe from 6:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on Thursday and Friday. Each day the officers took donations from people visiting the restaurant and handed out goodies like Chick-fil-A food coupons. While all this was happening in Lexington, officers with the West Columbia PD, the Cayce Department of Public Safety, and other departments were working the Chick-fil-A on Augusta Road in West Columbia.

According to the official Twitter page of the Lexington Police Department, the total donations from the two days event in Lexington was over $4,200! The total donations received in West Columbia aren’t currently available.

This function is part of the annual SC Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. That program, supported by law enforcement officers from across the state, continues to support the over 29,000 athletes in South Carolina. Officers receive assistance from businesses such as Chick-Fil-A, Krispy Kreme, and Fatz Café.

If you didn’t get a chance to do your part, watch the news closely for more fundraisers announcements in the future. You can also make a donation from the SC Special Olympics webpage at www.so-sc.org/health/torch-run.
