Lombard Firefighters will once again wear pink shirts throughout the month of October, in an effort to raise awareness during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Shirts are also available for public purchase, August 1 - 31, in order to raise funds for local residents in treatment.
“Each year we get more and more requests from people in the community who want to participate and it reminds us all of why we love this town so much,” said Lombard Firefighter/Paramedic Bob Hopper. “Lombard is a town that cares and we’re happy to provide people a chance to give back to their neighbors in need.”
Lombard Fire Chief Rick Sander approved the option for on duty fire department personnel to wear the pink shirts throughout the month of October.
A community photo involving the pink shirts will be taken at 7 p.m., during the Fire Department open house, Wednesday, October 10, 6-8 p.m. at Fire Station 45, 50 E. St. Charles Rd. The open house is in conjunction with Fire Prevention Week, October 7 – 13, 2018.
Shirts will be available for purchase for $15 throughout August. All orders must be made by August 31, 2018. All profits will go to the Bhorade Cancer Center at Good Samaritan Hospital. To place orders please email Firefighter Bob Hopper at LFDPINK@yahoo.com or call (708)769-6102. Please contact Communications Coordinator Avis Meade at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
