The Ridgefield Police invite area residents to join them in raising awareness about breast cancer by purchasing a patch today
Ridgefield is joining public safety agencies across the nation by participating in the “Pink Patch Project” for the fifth consecutive year this October. The Pink Patch Project is an innovative campaign designed to increase public awareness about breast cancer and to raise funds for the fight against the disease.
The project centers on vibrant pink versions of the agency’s uniform patches worn on uniforms during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” in October. The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation within the community and to encourage public awareness about the importance of early detection and treatment in the fight against breast cancer.
Since joining the Project in 2018, the Ridgefield Police Department has encouraged other law enforcement agencies in Clark County to create their own pink uniform patches and promote awareness of breast cancer in their communities.
In 2022, Ridgefield is joined by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office and the Battle Ground, La Center, and Camas Police Departments also participating in the project, spreading pink patches around the county.
The limited edition 2022 Ridgefield patches are available for sale to the community for $10 each to raise money for the Pink Lemonade Project, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to the education, support and empowerment of those affected by breast cancer.
Patches are available for purchase at the Ridgefield Police Department, Ridgefield Hardware, Seasons Coffee, Lava Java, Brewed Awakenings Ridgefield, and Taps Beer Reserve. Patches may also be purchased by mail: Ridgefield Police Department, PO Box 546, Ridgefield, WA 98642. If requesting a patch by mail, please include an additional $1 for postage, or provide a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
“Many of our lives have been touched because someone we know, love, or care about has been affected by cancer,” said Interim Police Chief Cathy Doriot, “the Pink Patch Project is an opportunity for us to connect with our community members to show our support to those who have been impacted by cancer, and to give financial support to a local non-profit through the sale of patches.”
Supply is limited for the 2022 patches, once they’re gone, they’re gone. The Ridgefield Police invite area residents to join them in raising awareness about breast cancer by purchasing a patch today.
