On Tuesday, participating CPK locations in California will donate 20% of a customer's check to Leist's family.
Leist, a 12-year veteran of the department, was hit and killed by a vehicle last month in Valley Village after she helped a woman who fell while crossing a street. She was returning to her vehicle when the traffic light turned green and an oncoming vehicle struck her, according to authorities.
