(REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.) – 11-year-old Tyler Carach is on a mission to thank police in all 50 states. On Wednesday morning he stopped in Rehoboth Beach. His motto is ‘I do not need a reason to say thank you.”

Carach is originally from Florida, and now he has traveled to 46 states to thank officers with donuts. During his trip to Rehoboth, he thanks police from stations across Sussex County and even Delaware State Police. 

This mission began in 2016. So far Carach has handed out 80,000 donuts. 

Carach says he was inspired to do this while at the store with his mom one day. “I saw four deputies, so I asked my mom if I could buy them donuts and thank them for their service,” he says. “They were really excited. When we left, I asked my mom why they were so excited over a snack and she said it wasn’t the snack they were excited about. It was because I took the time to say thank you.”

Tyler’s mission continues tomorrow when he will thank officers in Ocean City. He plans to hit all 50 states  He plans to hit all 50 states by August 2nd
