After eight years, Cops on Tops of Doughnut Shops fundraiser benefiting Special Olympics South Carolina, returned to the Lowcountry. Throughout the three day fundraiser, Law Enforcement Officers from several military, state and local agencies camped out on the roof of the Krispy Kreme store on Savannah Highway in Charleston and raised a total of $6,200.

Besides collecting donations, the cops sold T-shirts, Krispy Kreme coupons and other Special Olympics South Carolina swag. Cops on Top of Doughnut Shops is a national partnership between Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics and Krispy Kreme. Other events around the state have been held earlier this year, Myrtle Beach ($14,500), Greenville ($20,000), Florence ($3,000), Rock Hill ($8,600) and the Midlands ($12,000).

In 2013, statewide Krispy Kreme sits generated approximately $66,000. All funds raised go directly to Special Olympics South Carolina programs that enable athletes to train and compete year-round. Special Olympics South Carolina provides training for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
