Operation Chill - Slurpee Justice
This summer, Unified Police patrol officers will be dispensing well-deserved Slurpee justice to good kids in Midvale. For the 23rd year, 7-Eleven is working with local police and sheriff’s departments to distribute free Slurpee drink coupons to children and youth through its popular Operation Chill community-service program.
During 2018, 7-Eleven will issue up to 1.4 million Slurpee coupons to almost 1,100 law enforcement agencies. 550 of those will be distributed in Midvale, most during the summer months and back-to-school season.
Chief Randy Thomas said, “We are always looking for ways to help our officers build strong relationships in the community. Operation Chill makes it easy to interact with kids in a positive way. This is a great short- and long-term investment for 7-Eleven and for Midvale.”
Big-city departments and small-town forces alike use the Slurpee coupons to enhance relationships with the young people of their cities by rewarding them for good deeds, constructive activities and acts of kindness. Appropriate “offenses” might include helping another person, deterring crime or participating in a community or police-sponsored event. Although the reasons for being “ticketed” are varied, the result is the same for every youngster: a free Slurpee drink and a smile for being a good kid. Each coupon can be redeemed for a small Slurpee drink at participating 7-Eleven stores.
