The community comes together

November 4, 2016

Hurts Donut Co. in Coralville donated all proceeds from their sales to families of fallen soldiers on Wednesday, Nov. 2. In 20 hours, Hurts sold over 3,000 thin blue line donuts at $3 a piece. At times the line extended out the door and had a wait of an hour and fifteen minutes.

Additionally, Court Avenue Brewing Company, Americana and Gilroy’s in Des Moines offered free meals to any officers who came in on Wednesday.

Owner Scott Carlson said in a Facebook post “My 13-year-old son has a dream of becoming a police officer and I’m teary, sad and disappointed with what some of us become and do to one-another. Peace, strength and safety to our officers.”
