UNION — How would you like to sit down at a restaurant and have a cup of coffee with and talk to a police office and/or sheriff’s deputy?
You’ll have the chance to do so next Friday during “Coffee with a Cop” at McDonald’s.
In a statement released Thursday, McDonald’s announced that its Union County restaurant “will host ‘Coffee with a Cop’ on Friday, October 7, 2016 from 8-11 a.m. in conjunction with local law enforcement officers. This event brings police officers and the community members they serve together — over coffee — to discuss community issues, learn more about each other and build relationships in an informal environment. All Coffee with a Cop attendees will receive a free small cup of McCafé coffee, courtesy of your local McDonald’s.”
David Hunt, Owner/Operator of the Union McDonald’s, said the event is part of McDonald’s commitment to and involvement with the community.
“As a McDonald’s Owner/Operator, being involved in the community is the cornerstone of my business, and (I) look forward to hosting this event in conjunction with our local law enforcement,” Hunt said. “I hope that community members will attend the Coffee with a Cop events and feel comfortable to ask questions, bring forward concerns and get to know our officers.”
The press release states that “our McDonald’s in Union County will continue to work with local law enforcement offices throughout the year to host additional Coffee with a Cop events to encourage stronger relations between police officers and community members.”
