The Yuma Police Department is continuing efforts to raise money for the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics by kicking off a “Tip-A-Cop” event. The event will be held at Chili’s Restaurant in Yuma on December 18th from 11am-to-8pm. Special Olympics is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities. LETR helps bring awareness to Special Olympics and obtain donations for the athletes. The money and awareness they raise will help the athletes grow and continue to have opportunities to make new friends, learn new skills and discover their independence while participating in the many events Special Olympics offers. Yuma Police Department employees and other law enforcement officers will be at the restaurant as “celebrity waiters” and to receive tips for Special Olympics. Your donation is tax deductible.
