In support of October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Roselle Park Police Department (RPPD) – in conjunction with Roselle Park PBA Local 27 – is selling t-shirts to the public.
T-shirts are $10 each and all proceeds will be donated to breast cancer research. Sizes are available from small to 3x large. Shirts come in black and pink.
200 shirts were donated by Korinos, Inc., located at 178 West Westfield Avenue, to RPPD at no cost.
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease and to help those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education, and support services.
Although it has declined since the turn of the century, breast cancer affected 1 in every 8 American woman – according to the National Breast Cancer Foun=dation. Even though breast cancer affects men as well, less than 1% of all breast cancer develops in males. There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, so early diagnosis is critical.
Shirts can be purchased by visiting Roselle Park Police Headquarters anytime at 110 East Westfield Avenue.
