Support the Pink Patch Project
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and the Santa Clara Police Department and Santa Clara Police Officer’s Association are proud to announce that we have partnered with the Pink Patch Project to help raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer. This is the first year that the Santa Clara Police Department has participated in the Pink Patch Project.
The Pink Patch Project is a public awareness campaign, in partnership with over 150 Law Enforcement agencies nationwide, designed to bring attention to the fight against cancer and supports breast cancer research organizations in combating this devastating disease.
The Project centers on vibrant pink versions of our current Police Officer's uniform patches. The pink is intended to stimulate conversation with our community and to encourage public awareness about the importance of early detection and the on-going fight against breast cancer.
As part of this fight against breast cancer, we will be selling our pink patches directly to, YOU, our community. Each patch will cost $10 and 100% of the proceeds will benefit CancerCARE Point, a local organization that provides personalized counseling, assistance, resources, and education to Silicon Valley cancer patients, their families, and caregivers.
You may purchase your own pink patch from Santa Clara Police Department located at 601 El Camino Real, Santa Clara. The patches will be available at the front desk during regular business hours. Cash or checks made payable to the Santa Clara Police Officer’s Association will be accepted.
The Santa Clara Police Department and its' members support the fight against breast cancer and all forms of cancer. We as a department and community have seen the devastating effects this disease brings to families and communities first hand. The Pink Patch Project allows us to raise awareness, bring attention, and support the fight against breast cancer. Thank you for your support as we raise money to assist all those who have survived, who have fought, are fighting, and will fight this horrible disease.
