School’s out for summer and kids in Kendall County may actually look forward to their next encounter with the “heat” this summer, thanks to 7-Eleven stores’ Operation Chill program that rewards positive behavior with a very cool treat.
Through Operation Chill, Kendall County Sheriff’s Deputies can “ticket” youngsters caught in the act of doing good with Slurpee beverage coupons. Appropriate “offenses” might include helping another person, deterring crime, or participating in a positive activity in the community.
Each coupon can be redeemed for a small Slurpee drink at participating 7-Eleven stores.
Operation Chill began in 1995 and since that time, more than 12.5 million Operation Chill coupons have been distributed to hundreds of law enforcement agencies across the country in areas where 7-Eleven operates stores.
During 2014, approximately 1 million coupons will be issued nationally while locally, Kendall County Sheriff’s Office Deputies will be distributing the coupons during the summer months and back-to-school season.
