Bratt’s Doughnut Boy Featured On CBS Evening News

November 10, 2017

Bratt’s very own “Donut Boy” Tyler Carach was featured in a report Thursday night on the national “CBS Evening News”.

Tyler, 10, and his mother Sheena, who is a former police officer, created the “I DONUT need a reason to THANK a cop” program. Since buying doughnuts for four Escambia County deputies at a Bratt convenience store last August, Tyler has taken his mission on the road, providing doughnuts for law enforcement agencies across the country.

He recently completed a 10-day, 6,000 mile journey using doughnuts to thank law enforcement officers in several states, including officers in Las Vegas shortly after the mass shooting massacre.  So far, he’s passed out about 34,000 doughnuts.

CBS News report Mark Strassmann caught up with Tyler, who is a student at Byrneville Elementary School,  in Houston during his 10 day trip.

    Who pays for all those doughnuts and the traveling expenses? Can someone make a donation to the cause? If so, how?
