The Manhattan Beach Police Department is participating in the Pink Patch Project which is a collaborative effort between the Los Angeles County Police Chiefs’ Association and 300+ public safety agencies throughout the nation. This project is designed to increase public awareness about breast cancer and to raise funds for the fight against this disease.
During the month of October, employees of the Manhattan Beach Police Department will be demonstrating their support of breast cancer awareness by wearing pink shoulder patches on their uniforms. The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation within the community and to raise public awareness about the importance of early detection and treatment in the fight against breast cancer.
Pink Patch t-shirts (various styles) are currently for sale for $20 along with Pink Patch challenge coins for $5, Pink Patch bottle openers for $10, and our pink shoulder patches for $10. These items can be purchased at the front desk of MBPD until October 31st (cash only). We will also be selling Pink Patch items at the Manhattan Beach Farmers’ Market on various Tuesday throughout the month of October.
Johnny Rockets located at 1550 Rosecrans Ave, Manhattan Beach, will assist the Manhattan Beach Police Department in supporting Breast Cancer Awareness by hosting two events to take place on Friday, October 15, 2020 and Wednesday, October 28, 2020. Twenty percent of your order on these specific days will be donated to help the fight against breast cancer.
All proceeds will be donated to the Soroptimist International of Manhattan Beach to make breast cancer comfort bags for individuals battling breast cancer in the South Bay. You can sponsor a breast cancer comfort bag for a $50 donation.
