Sioux City Police were providing a different kind of public service Thursday by serving lunch to diners at the local Texas Roadhouse.
Retired police sergeant Mike Hamm says the officers were collecting tips for serving a pulled pork sandwich lunch to benefit Special Olympics Iowa.
OC………the same day. :11
Hamm started his association with Special Olympics over 25 years ago and his wife was a special education teacher for 35 years.
The money raised supports around 170 Special Olympians, some who have competed in games across the country and overseas:
OC…….all over the world. ;22
Last year’s effort raised over $5000 and Hamm hoped to raise more this year.
One hundred per cent of the donations for the lunch went to Special Olympics Iowa.
