Lexington County Sheriff’s Department teaming up with police for tasty September fundraiser

If you’ve been waiting for an excuse to enjoy a “hot now” Krispy Kreme doughnut, your chance to do so while contributing to a great cause is coming soon.

For three days this September, the Lexington County Sheriff’s Office and Lexington Police Department will again partner for the Cops on Top of Doughnut Shops fundraiser. On Sept. 25, 26 and 27, law enforcement will be on hand to accept donations from patrons at the Krispy Kreme stores on Knox Abbott Drive in Cayce and Sunset Boulevard in Lexington.
