Ok – so the whole uniform isn’t going pink but for the next month we are going to deviate from our normally strict appearance rules for a very good reason.
We are husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, sisters and brothers — cancer has touched the lives of many of our families so this month our employees will be paying to wear special pink T-shirts under their uniforms instead of their usual black ones to raise money for cancer research and support cancer patients.
We are asking for your help too –we are selling pink bracelets for $5 at each of several city locations: the Library, Community Center, City Hall and here at the Public Safety Building. All proceeds go to Karmanos Cancer Research and the Pink Fund a local charity that provides financial assistance to women undergoing treatment. We are working with our partners in the Auburn Hills Fire Department and the bracelets are imprinted with “Auburn Hills Police and Fire Departments.”
If you’d like to buy a bracelet stop by or show your support by donating to our effort —check out our donations page here.
