WABASH VALLEY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Team members from locally-owned McDonald’s restaurants came together in communities across the region on Wednesday to honor 49 police departments with a surprise delivery.
Every October, McDonald’s restaurants across the nation invite law enforcement officers and community members together in their restaurants for the nationally celebrated Coffee with a Cop day. This year, social distancing measures and closed lobbies prevented the gathering, so in lieu of a traditional event, restaurants delivered a mix of coffee, breakfast, or coupons straight to local law enforcement officers.
“Nothing could stop us from showing our appreciation for the sacrifices our officers make for our community,” said local McDonald’s owner/operator Jami Kasprzyk.
Jami and her husband Nick own and operate nine McDonald’s restaurants in the Wabash Valley area. They partnered with other local McDonald’s owner/operators to deliver to law enforcement agencies including the Terre Haute Police Department, sheriff’s departments in Vigo, Vermillion, Edgar and Clark counties, as well as others.
