Mass State Police Are Joining The "Pink Patch Project" For Breast Cancer Awareness!

It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month and, as a 13-year breast cancer survivor, I appreciate everyone who brings attention to this cause and raises money for research, treatment and care for those affected by breast cancer.  The Mass State Police, as well as other local police departments, have joined the "Pink Patch Project"!  Find out how to get yours and what local hospital will benefit from your donation...

It's #BreastCancerAwarnessMonth; MSP Announces Joining the #PinkPatchProject. Go to https://t.co/vDK9ybQIoI to read how you can get one.

According to the Mass State Police website, "The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation with the community and to encourage public awareness about the importance of early detection and the on-going fight against this disease. Each agency runs their program separately and independently and in a way that best fits their community. Some are selling just their pink patches and others are selling everything from patches and t-shirts, to challenge coins, stickers, dog tags, etc. The PPP partnership is simply a way to unify the various agencies under a common theme with the goal of fighting breast cancer."

Here's how you can get yours...

"The Massachusetts State Police is selling a limited supply of our pink MSP patches for $10 each. All proceeds raised will be donated to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston."

To receive a patch, send $10 cash, and a self-addressed stamped envelope to Trooper Dustin Fitch, attention “Pink Patch Project” on the envelope, to State Police General Headquarters in Framingham (address is on bottom left-column of the flyer).

Please contact Trooper Dustin Fitch at 508-820-2623 or email PinkPatchProject@MassMail.State.MA.US with any questions."
