Sunday, October 15: Support the Pink Patch Project
October 3, 2023
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and we are thrilled to announce that the Pomona Police Department and the Pink Patch Project will be back at the Pomona Swap Meet on Sunday, October 15th!
WHAT IS THE PINK PATCH PROJECT?
The Pink Patch Project is an innovative public awareness campaign to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support breast cancer research organizations in combating this devastating disease.
The project is a collaborative effort between the Los Angeles County Police Chiefs’ Association and public safety agencies in Los Angeles County and beyond.
These agencies have partnered together to combat breast cancer by raising public awareness about the importance of early detection in the fight against the disease and to raise funds for breast cancer research and treatment.
HELP SUPPORT THE FIGHT AGAINST BREAST CANCER
The Pink Patch Project has one 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.
The Pomona Police Department will be set up on the Main Aisle of the Pomona Swap Meet on Sunday, October 15th, to sell Pomona Police Pink Patches, pins, t-shirts, key chains, bottle openers, challenge coins, and more! All proceeds raised from the sale of these Pink Patch Project items will benefit the Robert and Beverly Lewis Family Cancer Care Center for research, treatment, and the education necessary to find a cure for breast cancer.
We’d like to thank all of the men and women of the Pomona Police Department for their service, and for their dedication to our community!
