The Hunterdon County Sheriff’s Office joined the fight against breast cancer by wearing uniforms with pink patches through the month of October. Patches were available for sale to the public for a suggested donation of $10 and 100% of the proceeds were donated to Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center.
The #PinkPatchProject (PPP) is a collaborative effort among hundreds of public safety agencies throughout the nation designed to increase public awareness about breast cancer and to raise funds for the fight against the disease. The Pink Patch Project centers on vibrant pink versions of each agency’s uniform patches. Public safety employees from these agencies wore these bright pink patches on their uniforms in lieu of their regular shoulder patches during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Each public safety agency in the PPP program manages their participation locally and independently, in a way that best fits their particular community. The pink patches were intended to stimulate conversations with the community and to raise public awareness about the importance of early detection and treatment in the fight against breast cancer.
