October 1st marks the first day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For the third year in a row, Glendora Police Officers have the option of wearing pink to honor those that have battled breast cancer. The purpose of this campaign is conversation...if we talk about it, we raise awareness. Through this awareness, we hope that women (and men, too) will make their checkups and health a priority...because early detection saves lives.
This year, we are again partnering with the #PinkPatchProject. We are selling our limited supply of 2018 Glendora Police Pink Patches...with the goal of donating at least $10,000 to our charity in November. Patches are $10 each, and can be purchased in the front lobby of the Glendora Police Department, or by sending an email to Sergeant Shawna Celello at email@example.com. In 2016-2017, we have donated $17,000 to the City of Hope, so we know we can reach our goal this year with your help!
Patches and t-shirts will also be available at our Coffee with a Cop event later this week (Classic Coffee, 10/03, 8 - 9:30 am) and at Pink Patches & Pasta (Spaghetti Eddie’s, 10/04, 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm). Join us!
