GREENVILLE, S.C. -

Cops were on top of a donut shop for two days raising money for South Carolina Special Olympics.

Representatives from Greenville Police, the Greenville County Sheriff's Office and the South Carolina Highway Patrol were stationed atop the Krispy Kreme location at 302 North Pleasantburg Drive.

The fundraiser began Friday morning and ran until Saturday at 9:00 pm. Through late Saturday night, Greenville Police Department spokesman Johnathan Bragg said that more than $18,000 has been raised, but they say they're still counting the donations as they work toward their $20,000 goal. 

"We know that all of this money goes straight back to them (Special Olympics)," said Mike Gambrell of the Greenville Police Departmnet, "and we're proud to be up here.  Seeing them get those medals puts a smile on their face.  That's what puts a smile on our face." 

Last year's Cops on Top of a Doughnut Shop event raised $22,000 for Special Olympics. the goal this year is $20,000.

You can make a donation directly to the officers, deputies and troopers at that Krispy Kreme or you can donate online by clicking here.
