Fairfield University Security Officers to participate in "Tip-A-Cop" fundraiser for Special Olympics at Dunkin' Donuts


Security Officers from Fairfield University's Security Department will donate their time and service at Dunkin' Donuts on Saturday, May 8, in an effort to raise money for Special Olympics Connecticut.

Fairfield University Security Officers will take part in the fundraiser, which will run from 8 a.m. to12 noon. Officers will be assisting the Dunkin' Donuts staff and asking for donations. The event will be held at two Dunkin' Donuts locations: 593 Boston Post Road and 200 Tunxis Hill Road in Fairfield.

The "Tip-A-Cop" fundraiser concept has been used by many law enforcement agencies to raise money for Special Olympics, however, this is the first year that Dunkin' Donuts has joined in this effort, said Todd A. Pelazza, director of Security at Fairfield University.

"The Security Department has been involved with Special Olympics for a long time and this is just another way to help contribute to this important organization," Pelazza said, adding that all donations will go directly to Special Olympics Connecticut.
