WASHINGTON — Redskins backup quarterback Colt McCoy made a thoughtful gesture toward a local police department Texas this week.

McCoy had Dunkin’ Donuts and coffee delivered to the Leander Police on Monday, along with a personalized letter, which reads:

“Dear Officers,

I hope this note (and these donuts) find you well. I wanted to take the time to reach out and offer my gratitude to your department.

I appreciate all that you do for our community — not only in times of hardship — but each and every day that you bravely put the well-being of others before your own. Being tasked with the job of protecting the community of Austin is an incredibly difficult job, and your servitude is both honorable and commendable. I have the utmost respect for it, and you.

Thank you for all that you do.”

(McCoy is part of an investment group which brought a chain of Dunkin’ Donuts to the Austin area several year back, so, that explains the brand preference.)

Leander Police thanked McCoy for the surprise delivery on Facebook, their message reading in part, “Thanks Colt for the coffee and donuts! What made you think of donuts?”
