Join us for the Montgomery County Public Safety Blood and Food Drive to be held on Wednesday, July 2.
Cici’s Pizza and Montgomery County law enforcement agencies (including MCP and Rockville City Police) are teaming up to raise money for Special Olympics Maryland (SOMD).
The Rockville location (12111 Rockville Pike) of CiCi’s will be holding a “Dough Raiser” event on Tuesday, August 27.
Officers from Montgomery County Police and Rockville City Police will be at the restaurant and will be helping to sell icons stating that the purchaser supports SOMD. Purchasers of the icons will then help “cover the cruiser” by placing the icons on police cruisers.
Additionally, Cici’s will donate a percentage of its proceeds for the day to SOMD.
Please come out and help support local law enforcement, Cici’s restaurant, and SOMD!!
