WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The Warner Robins Police Department did their part to fight cancer Thursday afternoon, thanks to their Pink Patch Project.
A $2,000 check was given to the Georgia Cancer Friends Foundation, an organization that serves the community by supporting cancer patients, survivors, and their families in their time of need.
“We have a lot of need right now,” said Judy Mason, the president of the foundation. “People needing medication, transportation, or money to pay their bills.”
Mason is also the owner of the Color Me Pink store, a clothing boutique dedicated to helping those afflicted with cancer.
This was the first year the department participated in the Pink Patch Project. Police emblems colored in a pink shade were sold to the public for $10 a piece all throughout October, with every penny of the proceeds going toward Georgia Cancer Friends.
“A huge thank you to the Warner Robins Police Department,” said Mason. “I was so surprised they were going to dedicate the funds from the Pink Patch Project to Georgia Cancer Friends. Because that money stays in the community, and it took them a lot of time and hours to raise this money.”
Mason believes the money will be a significant help to those who need the emotional and financial support, “We’re apart of Warner Robins, Houston County so anything we can do to help each other as teamwork is wonderful.”
