Weld County Sheriff's Department Raises Funds for Special Olympics

Deputies and corrections officers from Weld County (Colorado) Sheriff's Department donated their time for a Tip-A-Cop dinner function to raise funds for Special Olympics. Nearly $3,000 was raised at the event, and departments across Colorado have raised some $40,000 this year for the program, according to Longmont Times-Call.

Departments across the nation traditionally raise funds for Special Olympics through a variety of fundraisers including the Tip-A-Cop dinners in which restaurants partner with local law enforcement, and all tips from customers go to the cause; pledges toward the Special Olympics Torch Relay; fun runs and more.

To find out if your local law enforcement agency supports Special Olympics, give 'em a call, and consider volunteering.
