PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — An inspiring little boy on a mission to thank every police officer in the country made a stop in Rhode Island Monday.

“Donut boy,” also known as 10-year-old Tyler Carach, began his journey back in 2016, entitled “I DONUT need a reason to thank a cop.” Since then, he and his mother have traveled the country delivering doughnuts to police officers nationwide.

On Monday, he spent his day thanking police officers across the state. Local Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees also helped sponsor the doughnuts he delivered to cops, according to his Facebook page.

Carach spent time delivering doughnuts to the Rhode Island State Police and the Cranston, Warwick, Providence and Central Falls Police Departments. He also thanked all of the officers who attended the Police Chief’s Golf Tournament in Cranston.

He was also invited to roll call at the Providence Police Department, where he handed out doughnuts and thanked each officer.

From here, Carach and his mother are on their way to Boston to thank more police officers with hugs, smiles and, of course, doughnuts.
