A Florida boy on a mission to thank police officers across the country brought his message of appreciation, and donuts, to the Blue Ash Police Department.

Tyler Carach, 11, has been delivering donuts to police departments across the country as part of his “I DONUT need a reason to THANK a cop” mission. 

Carach brought dozens of delicious donuts to Blue Ash police officers on July 5th, courtesy of Bonnie Lynn Bakery.

“After meeting 4 cops at a local store and buying them donuts in August 2016, I decided that I wanted to give donuts to all the cops in America,” Carach states on his organization’s Facebook page.

So far, he has delivered nearly 90,000 donuts to officers in 47 states. 

“Meeting Tyler was an amazing experience for me. To see a driven young man on a mission to thank police officers across the nation was inspiring. He has taken up a cause and is determined to spread kindness and compassion to law enforcement,” said Blue Ash Sergeant Allison Schlie.

Sgt. Schlie accompanied Carach and his family to Red, White & Blue Ash on July 4th at Summit Park.

“It was certainly my pleasure and privilege to get to know Tyler and his family and to show them some of the best of what Blue Ash has to offer.  We cannot thank Tyler and his family enough for their support; it was heartwarming for us to see him in action,” said Sgt. Schlie.

Next, Carach will visit police officers in South Carolina, bringing the number of states he has visited to 48.
