October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a worldwide annual campaign involving thousands of organizations, to highlight the importance of breast awareness, education, and research. All month long, the Ferndale Fire Department will host a t-shirt sale benefiting Shades of Pink, a local non-profit organization that helps breast cancer patients.
The Ferndale Firefighters will be wearing these shirts all month long while on duty. The public can purchase them for $20 (cash only) during the month of October from 9 am. to 5 p.m. at Fire Station #1, located at 1635 Livernois St. Please wear a mask upon arrival.
All proceeds will benefit the Shades of Pink Foundation, an organization ensuring breast cancer patients throughout Southeast Michigan have access to financial safety to focus resources of treatment and recovery during their time of need. They operate by the principle that no person should have to forgo life-saving medical treatment to pay for monthly expenses. The Ferndale FireDepartment is pleased to extend their efforts during this time.
For more information, please contact the Ferndale FireDepartment at: (248) 546-2510.
