‘Donut boy’ completes mission to deliver sweet treat to cops in all 50 states

KAUAI, Hawaii — An 11-year-old boy who set out to deliver donuts to police agencies in all 50 states recently completed his mission.

According to the Honolulu Star Advertiser, Tyler Carach visited the Kauai Police Department on August 8 – his last stop of a journey that began in August 2016.

Carach was inspired to start his program, “I donut need a reason to thank a cop,” after noticing four LEOs eating lunch at a local store and using his allowance to buy them donuts as thanks for protecting the public.

Since then, Carach has delivered over 90,000 donuts to cops in all 50 states, according to the report.

At his last stop, Kauai Mayor Derek S. K. Kawakami presented Carach – who one day wants to be a K-9 officer – with a proclamation recognizing him for his service.

As for what’s next, Carach says he’s just getting started.
