EAST BRIDGEWATER — Chief Scott Allen is pleased to share that the East Bridgewater Police Department is participating in the Pink Patch Project this month.
The Pink Patch Project is a collaborative effort among public safety agencies nationwide to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support cancer research organizations.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and beginning this week, the East Bridgewater Police Department is selling a limited number of pink patches. Patches will cost $10 each, with all proceeds benefiting the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center – Breast Cancer Research. Last year the department raised approximately $700 for breast cancer research.
Additionally, many officers will be wearing the pink patch throughout October.
“We’re proud to participate in the Pink Patch Project once again,” Chief Allen said. “Unfortunately, breast cancer is a disease many people have a connection to. Contributing to a good cause through this project once again is a way for us to show support and raise awareness within our community.”
The pink patches can be purchased anytime at the East Bridgewater Police Station located at 153 Central Street. The department will accept checks or money orders payable to Mass General Cancer Center – Breast Cancer Research.
The patches can also be purchased online. Those who donate $10 or more online will be mailed a patch by the East Bridgewater Police Department.
