LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Krispy Kreme has stepped in to comfort Kentucky police officers mourning the loss of a doughnut truck that caught fire.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports the company and a police escort delivered dozens of doughnuts to the city police department Wednesday afternoon.
Officer Kyle Mounce says no one was injured when a Krispy Kreme truck caught fire in the city on Monday, but the truck’s doughnuts were ruined. The fire’s cause was unclear as of Monday.
“The Lexington Police Department has been blown away by the positive mesages and support received in the wake of the New Year’s Eve Doughnut Truck Fire,” police posted in a tweet thanking the company for the donuts and showing officers enjoying the treets. “The impact of that tragedy was felt not just across the country, but around the globe.”
Lexington police had earlier shared posts on social media of the burned truck and officers jokingly mourning the loss. The posts spread across social media and were widely shared. Police departments across the country offered their condolences. The chief marketing officer for Krispy Kreme, Dave Skena, says the company wanted to comfort the department in their time of sorrow.
