CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - On Friday, local law enforcement officers will take over Chick-fil-A once again for their annual Cops on the Coop event.

Officials from 12 different agencies will be stationed at nine Chick-fil-A restaurants across the Lowcountry collecting donations.

One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to Special Olympics athletes in South Carolina.

Police are trying to bring attention to the Special Olympics and hope you can help them raise funds. To do so, when you go to a participating Chic-fil-A, all you have to do, is put some money in the buckets provided for fundraising.

The following Chick-fil-A locations are participating in the program:

  • Goose Creek
  • Mount Pleasant (2 locations)
  • North Charleston (Dorchester Road)
  • James Island
  • Summerville
  • Savannah Highway (New location)
  • Tanger Outlets (New location)
  • Moncks Corner (New location)

A $20 contribution to Special Olympics gets a donor a Law Enforcement Torch Run T-Shirt and a coupon to use at Chick-Fil-A.

Fundraisers like Cops on the Coop and the Torch Run, allow athletes to participate in the games free of charge.

The Cops will be out at Chick-fil-A from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
