Pink Patch Project
Laguna Beach Police, Fire, and Marine Safety Participate in the Pink Patch Project
The Laguna Beach Police, Fire, and Marine Safety Departments joined forces to raise money for breast cancer awareness through participation in the Pink Patch Project.
The Pink Patch Project is a collaborative effort between public safety departments across the country, in a fundraising effort centered on the sale of vibrant pink versions of each of the public safety department’s uniform patches. These bright pink patches have been specially designed by each participating agency, specifically for the Pink Patch Project campaign. Members of the participating agencies wear these pink patches on their uniforms for the entire month of October, which is “Breast Cancer Awareness Month.” The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation with the community and to encourage public awareness about the importance of early detection and the on-going fight against this disease.
Through the combined effort of each of the City of Laguna Beach Public Safety Departments, a total of $4200 was raised and will be donated to the local Laguna Beach Community Clinic. The money donated will be used to provide mammograms and breast exams for men and/or women who cannot afford it. The Laguna Beach Fire Department raised an additional $840, which will be donated to The Firefighter Cancer Support Network.
Our Mission is to continue to raise money and bring awareness to this important cause. All Pink Patch items will continue to be available both online and at the front counter of the Laguna Beach Police Department. Check out our website at www.lbpdpinkpatch.com.
