Local police to participate in Cop on a Rooftop fundraiser May 19 for Special Olympics

On May 19 local police officers will take to the roof of a local doughnut shop to help raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics, a worldwide organization that helps people with intellectual disabilities participate in sporting events.
 

Cop on a Rooftop at Dunkin Donuts on Friday will raise money for Special Olympics Illinois

Sometimes to get attention, it helps to rise above the crowd. 

Homewood police officers will be rising to roof level to get attention from 6 a.m. to noon Friday at Dunkin Donuts, 17579 Halsted St., Homewood. The annual Cop on a Rooftop program is an effort to raise money for Special Olympics Illinois, according to Homewood Deputy Police Chief Denise McGrath. 

About Us

A great community deserves a great newspaper. The HF Chronicle was created in June 2014 as the Homewood Chronicle (but we soon realized Homewood and Flossmoor are so interconnected that it makes better sense to cover both villages). Our mission is to chronicle the life of our community — news by, for, and about the people of Homewood and Flossmoor, Illinois.
