On Friday, May 17, LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and their handlers attended the Deerfield Police Department’s “Cop on a Rooftop” fundraising event at Dunkin’ in support of the Illinois Special Olympics. Each community member who visited a “Cop on a Rooftop” location and made a donation to the Law Enforcement Torch Run received a delicious free donut. As they flowed in and out of the restaurant, they were able to spend time with Miriam Comfort Dog-in-Training, Marie Comfort Dog-in-Training, and LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dog Flex (LCC Squad) and veteran Fred.
Chicago’s 93-XRT radio station was also on site promoting the event, and interacting with the LCC K-9s. Everyone’s hard work made the event a great success, raising almost $5,000 for the Illinois Special Olympics.
