Tylers Travels Comes To Clare

Eight year old Tyler Carach began a mission to thank every Police Officer in America in August 2016. While at a local store near his home in Florida, he saw four deputies and asked his mother if he could use his allowance money to buy them their favorite snack…donuts! After doing so, he asked why the Officers were so excited and his mother explained that unfortunately a lot of people choose to judge a whole by a few and because of that some people were not very kind to Officers and even tried to hurt them. It was at that moment, Tyler decided he wanted to do more for Officers. He right then started a mission to thank every single Officer in America and give them each their favorite treat…DONUTS.
During the summer, Tyler travels the country meeting police offers and giving them free donuts. This year, Michigan is one of those states! Tyler will be greeting officers and providing them with donuts June 5th at Cops & Doughnuts in Clare, Mt. Pleasant and Lansing, Michigan. Officers from around the state are expected to attend.
