Tip-A-Cop for Special OlympicsFebruary 15, 2018, 1:24 PM HST (Updated February 15, 2018, 1:31 PM)
The Hawai‘i Police Department is hoping to top it previous fundraising efforts for Special Olympics East Hawaiʻi and help the nonprofit reach its goal of $140,000—its annual budget amount.
The Hawai‘i Police Department’s Tip-A-Cop is a coordinated project to raise awareness and funds for athletes of Special Olympics Hawaiʻi. During the project, off-duty officers—”Celebrity Servers”—volunteer department employees and Special Olympics personnel will greet customers, waiting tables and serving patrons at participating restaurants.
Last year’s 2017 event raised over $5,000 through the collective efforts of HPD officers and volunteers.
