Fire Department Goes Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness
During October, the members will wear pink hoods on their uniforms. They are also selling T-shirts at Cinnaminson Day to raise awareness.
For the entire month of October, on-duty members of the Cinnaminson Fire Department will don T-shirts in support of breast cancer awareness.
This is the second year the fire department is supporting the cause in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The members will wear pink fire-resistant protective hoods on their uniforms, all paid for by the individual members.
At Cinnaminson Day Sunday, fire department members will man a booth and sell supporter T-shirts. All proceeds benefit a breast cancer research foundation.
Children and adult sizes will be available. After Cinnaminson Day, the shirts will be available at the Cinnaminson Avenue station.
Last year was the fire year the fire department supported the cause with pink hoods. Jean Dietrick, the department's business administrator, is a breast cancer survivor
“This is a very important cause to me, and to see them all support it is very moving,” Dietrick told Cinnaminson Patch last year. “They’re my family and they provided me nothing but support when I went through treatment.”
