Cops in Pink

For the next month we are going to deviate from our normally strict appearance rules for a very good reason:  we want to show our support for the fight against breast cancer.

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 donate to the Pink Fund 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 know that that for people undergoing treatment the financial burden is tremendous.  The Pink Fund helps provide financial support.

We are asking for your help too –we are selling pink bracelets for $5 here at the Public Safety Building.  All proceeds go to the Pink Fund a 501(c)(3) charity that provides financial assistance to women undergoing treatment.  We are working with our partners in the Auburn Hills Fire Department so the bracelets are imprinted with “Auburn Hills Police and Fire Departments.”   We know that some of our colleagues in other local communities are participating as well.  Send me your photos of officers you meet wearing pink and I’ll post them on this blog:  dolko@auburnhills.org.   Keep an eye on our social media–we will be posting photos of officers in pink. Twitter  and Facebook.

If you’d like to show your support stop by our desk and buy a bracelet  or donate to our effort —here is how you can help:  click here.

We appreciate your support.
