“Donut Boy” Makes Stop at Mall of America to Honor Minnesota’s Law Enforcement

Tyler says how he got started on his mission was simple

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — Law enforcement officials in Minnesota were in for a special treat at the Mall of America.

Tyler Carach, also known as “Donut Boy,” is from Florida, but he is making it his mission in life to say thank you to every member of law enforcement in the nation.

He has traveled to dozens of states, handing out donuts to the men and women in blue.

But today, he celebrated his tenth birthday with a special party at the Mall of America to honor Minnesota’s law enforcement officers.

Tyler says how he got started on his mission was simple.

“On August 1st, 2016, me and my mom went to a local store and I bought mini donuts with my own money and gave them to cops,” Tyler said. “When we left, I said I want to thank every cop in America. I want to let them know that people still care.”

Tyler, who is in year two of his mission, has handed out more than 40-thousand donuts to officers.

He also makes sure every officer at the party receives a thank you card.

As for what he wants to be when he grows up, no surprise here.

Tyler hopes to be a K9 officer.
