HOLBROOK — Chief William Smith is pleased to announce that the Holbrook 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 Holbrook Police Department will be selling a limited number of pink patches. Patches will cost $10 each, with all the proceeds benefiting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Additionally, many officers will be wearing the pink patch throughout October.
“We are pleased to once again be wearing and selling pink patches in support of this important initiative that raises awareness and funds for breast cancer research,” Chief Smith said. “Through participating in the Pink Patch Project, we are not only doing our part to raise awareness but also showing our support for those impacted by breast cancer.”
Those who would like to purchase a patch can do so at the Holbrook Police station, 300 South Franklin St., at the front desk. Please note that only cash will be accepted for the patches.
Community members will also be able to purchase pink patches at the department’s upcoming National Faith and Blue Weekend Touch-A-Truck event on Sunday, Oct. 10 from noon to 4 p.m. at the Sumner Fields on South Franklin Street (Route 37).
