HAMILTON, Ohio -- Florida native Tyler Carach has delivered more than 60,000 doughnuts to law enforcement officers in 28 states.
Tyler, 10, goes by the name "Donut Boy." On Friday, he made his latest stop, to the Butler County Sheriff's Office, along with two dozen doughnuts from each of the bakeries on the Butler County Donut Trail.
Officers who met Tyler said they appreciated the gesture.
"Makes us feel appreciated. It's great," Fairfield Police Chief Steve Maynard said. "Especially a kid his age that recognizes the sacrifices the officers and safety services make, and going out of his way."
Tyler's doughnut deliveries started with a simple act of kindness.
"Me and my mom, sometime in August, I saw four deputies in a local store of ours. I asked my mom if I could buy them a little pack of mini doughnuts with my own money," he said.
Tyler said the officers lit up with the gift.
His mom, Sheena Carach, said she's "incredibly proud."
"We have a very blue-backing family," she said. "Law enforcement family. We just really support them, what they do, what they stand for."
