ADDISON – Kids caught red handed doing good deeds in Addison may find themselves cold handed as a result, holding a free Slurpee drink.

Addison police officers will be handing out free Slurpee coupons this summer through Operation Chill, 7-Eleven stores’ popular community service program, according to a village news release.

Through Operation Chill, Addison police officers will be giving “tickets” to youngsters who are caught in random acts of kindness or good deeds in the form of free Slurpee coupons.

Appropriate “offenses” might include helping another person, wearing a bicycle helmet while riding or skateboarding, deterring crime or participating in a positive activity in the community, the release stated.

Since the program’s inception in 1995, more than 12.5 million Operation Chill coupons have been distributed to law enforcement agencies across the country where 7-Eleven operates stores.

During the upcoming summer months and back-to-school season, good kids in more than 600 neighborhoods, cities, towns and counties will receive free Slurpee coupons, the release stated.
