Ferndale Police Launch Pink Patch Project

October 4, 2017

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and with 1 in 8 women diagnosed with the disease there’s a good chance you or someone you love has been affected. Early detection and awareness are key. Being armed with knowledge, motivated to act, and supported by those who have walked a similar path are additional keys to survival and healing.

Join the Ferndale Police Department in raising resources and awareness by participating in the #PinkPolicePatch project. The first 100 people to come into the Ferndale Police Department, located at 310 E. Nine Mile Rd., and ask for a breast cancer awareness patch, will receive a pink Ferndale Police shoulder-patch key chain. Present this patch at any of the participating Ferndale establishments during the month of October and 10% of your bill will be donated locally to Gilda’s Club Metro Detroit—an organization working to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.

Restaurant partnering with us in this effort are:

  • Assaggi Bistro
  • Danny’s Irish Pub
  • Detroit Fleat
  • Dino’s
  • The Emory
  • Flytrap
  • Greenspace Café
  • Hambo Coney Island
  • Howe’s Bayou
  • J’s Penalty Box
  • Livernois Tap
  • M-Brew
  • Michigo Pizza
  • Otus Supply
  • Rosie O’Grady’s
  • Sakana
  • Sneakers
  • Woodward Avenue Brewers (WAB)
  • Zeke’s Rock ‘n Roll BBQ

Please visit these fine Ferndale establishments often throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month and make sure you flash your Ferndale PD Pink Police Patch Project key chain. At the end of October we will tally up the receipts from all of our partnering establishments and make a donation to Gilda’s Club Metro Detroit.

If you have questions about the project, please contact Ferndale Police Community Engagement Officer Sgt. Baron Brown at 248-541-3650.
