Opelika-Auburn News - 3/27/2018

Local law enforcement agencies will stand on the roofs of the Auburn and Opelika Kroger stores on April 13 to raise funds for the Alabama Special Olympics.

During the "Cops on Top" event, the Auburn Police Department, Opelika Police Department and the Lee County Sheriff's Department will raise funds at the Auburn and Opelika Kroger stores. The event will take place from 8 a.m. to 8 pm.

Elizabeth Kaufman, therapeutic programs coordinator for the city of Auburn, said the event usually raises between $6,000 and $8,000. The city hopes to raise even more this year.

"We would love to amass what we raised this year at the Polar Plunge, which was $12,000," Kaufman said

Some officers will be on the roof at the Kroger locations, while other officers will be available outside the store to accept donations alongside Special Olympics athletes. Some local celebrities will also be in attendance.
