Cops in East Greenbush will take the Christmas carol, “Up on the Rooftop,” literally on Saturday, December 14 when they climb up on the roof of the East Greenbush Wal-Mart at 279 Troy Road.
Called “Cops on Top,” it’s the second year for this event in East Greenbush and shoppers can see them from 8:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. The cops are raising funds and awareness for New York Special Olympics.
Members of local, county and state law enforcement will be placed on the roof and will remain there until $15,000 is raised for this charity. The proceeds go directly to the athletes and their families who compete. There will be a raffle held with tons of prizes throughout the day, officials said in a statement.
The Saratoga Springs Wal-Mart located at 16 Old Glick Road will also participate.
