In four weeks, officers with the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department and Lexington Police Department in cooperation with Krispy Kreme will conduct the annual Cops on Top of Doughnut Shops fund raiser for South Carolina Special Olympics on Wednesday, September 25, Thursday, September 26 and Friday, September 27 at Krispy Kreme stores on Knox Abbott Drive in Cayce and Sunset Boulevard in Lexington. Officers will accept donations for Special Olympics from customers at the Krispy Kreme stores, with all proceeds benefitting Special Olympics.

Lexington County Sheriff James R.

Money that Krispy Kreme customers donate to law enforcement officers will be used to help pay for athletes to compete in state and national Special Olympics competitions, Metts said.
