Park Police will conduct fundraiser at Dunkin Donuts Fri., June 1
Naperville Park District Police will greet Naperville area residents early Friday morning from the rooftop of the Dunkin Donuts shop on Rt. 59 and Brookdale Road, asking for donations of any amount for Illinois Special Olympics. Everyone who donates will receive a coupon for a free donut.
Eddie and Jobo from WJMK FM also will be on site broadcasting their morning show from the Cop on a Rooftop event from 5:30 to 10AM.
“This is a fun event, and a unique way that police officers can help support Special Olympics,” said Park Police Chief Carl Schnibben.
Chief Schnibben began fundraising and promoting Special Olympics over 20 years ago and has continued to do so throughout his career in various police departments.
Park Police will be fundraising for Special Olympics throughout the summer by selling hats ($15), tee shirts ($15), pins ($5) and raffle tickets for a Harley-Davidson motorcycle drawing ($10). Merchandise will be sold during the various events and also is available for purchase through the Naperville Park District at 320 West Jackson Ave.
The efforts of Naperville Park Police combine with other law enforcement support throughout the state to bring approximately $2 million each year for Special Olympics Illinois. These funds help more than 22,000 athletes develop improved physical fitness and self-esteem.
