Support the Pink Patch Project
July 29, 2017
The Pink Patch Project is coming to the Pomona Swap Meet!
The Pomona Swap Meet is proud to announce that the Pomona Police Department and the Pink Patch Project will be at our show on Sunday, August 13th.
The Pink Patch Project is a collaborative effort by law enforcement and public safety agencies to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support cancer research organizations. It’s estimated that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Breast cancer can have a profound and lasting impact on both the patient and her loved ones, but this is a disease that can be effectively treated through surgery, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, and chemotherapy.
The Pink Patch Project has a simple goal: increase awareness about the life saving benefits of early detection and intervention in the fight against breast cancer. The Project’s symbol is a bright pink version of the public safety officer’s uniform patch, and each participating agency has specially designed their own patch.
How Can You Support the Pink Patch Project?
The Pomona Police Department will be set up on the Main Aisle of the Pomona Swap Meet on Sunday, August 13th, to sell Pomona Police Pink Patches, pins, t-shirts, and Pink Patch Project collector coins. Money raised from the sale of these Pink Patch Project items will go directly to City of Hope for research, treatment, and the education necessary to find a cure.
