UMPD raises over $5500 dollars for MD Special Olympics

30 hours later and just under an inch of rain, the University of Maryland Police Department raised $5534 dollars for Maryland Special Olympics. Officers and civilians took to the Dunkin Donuts at 9701 Baltimore Avenue in College Park, at 6 A.M. on September 21st and remain there until 12 P.M. on September 22nd. Sergeant John Brown, Master Patrol Officers Clay Brown, and Brian Meekins set up tents on the rooftop for 30 hours of Dunkin Donuts greeting customer and drivers, cracking jokes, and raising awareness for Maryland Special Olympics.  


Master Patrol Officers Tonya Walker, Garfield Kelly, Sam Jones, Shawn Brown, Sergeants Rosanne Hoaas and August Kenner, Captain Robert Mueck, and civilians Hunter Mueck, Victoria Mammano, Barb Asbury, and Jenny Asbury greeted customers on the ground level and provided information about Special Olympics to customers. A thank you to Master Patrol Officer Kathy Culhane for logistical support, John Hall for set up and break down, and Master Patrol Officers Derrick Thompson and Minkyu Pak for coverage.

Customers were able to donate by purchasing raffle tickets for a chance to win various items, a silent auction for a chance to win various athletic memorabilia, or just donate cash. For a third year in a row, Sergeant Paige Miller organized and facilitated another successful event. Because of her continuous dedication and passion for Special Olympics, UMPD has been able to participate in a wonderful event for a great organization. UMPD would also like to thank Dunkin Donuts for their continuous support and allowing us the use of their establishment.
