A woman in Idaho is expressing her thanks to the law enforcement community for the assistance she says was integral to helping her stay clean and sober for the past 23 years.

Karen Martin, known locally as “Big Mama,” started to receive donations at her local place of business years ago to help buy police officers coffee over the holidays.

The program, called “Coffee for Cops Supported by Citizens for Cops,” is now in it’s eighth year and Martin has raised almost $3,000 on a gift card at a local Starbucks. 

Officers can stop by the coffee shop and have a drink on Martin and all of the community supporters that appreciate the dangerous and difficult work done by their law enforcement community.
