Donut shop raising funds for son after officer dad dies from cancer
LITTLE ROCK (KATV) —
Hoping to secure the educational future of a 10-year-old, a local business owner is giving back in a big way.
Back in September, this boy's father died, cutting short a career in public service. Little Rock Police Sergeant Cedric Roy lost his battle to cancer.
The owner of two Dunkin Donuts in the capital city now wants to make sure Roy’s son gets the college fund he needs.
Leonard Falcone tells KATV since he bought the two locations about a year and a half ago, he's made it a mission to give back to the community.
"LRPD are phenomenal. I know they're up against some really tough situations here in Little Rock, and I just wanted to say for what they do and for what our us military does, I’m honored to be in this position," said Falcone.
On Saturday, from 4 to 10 p.m. at the 6805 Cantrell, all proceeds from sales will go toward the scholarship.
It will happen again on Sunday, November 19, from 4 to 10 p.m. at 10721 Kanis Road.
