For the second year in a row, the Wilmington Police Department will be taking part in the “Pink Patch Project” to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support breast cancer research organizations in combating this devastating disease. Participating Officers will wear a Wilmington Police Department pink patch on their uniform during the month of October. The patch was designed by Officer Emily Stebbins, the Wilmington Middle School Resource Officer.
According to the Pink Patch Project website, there are more than 390 agencies participating in the program that have raised more than $1000000 for breast cancer research and support organizations.
Patches will be available for sale for $10 each at the Wilmington Police Department beginning on October 1. All proceeds from the patches will go to the Hope and Friendship Metastatic Breast Cancer Foundation, a Wilmington based organization.
