What is the Pink Patch Project?

The Pink Patch Project is an innovative public awareness campaign formed to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support breast cancer research organizations in combating this devastating disease. La Center, and many other agencies, have partnered together to combat breast cancer by raising public awareness about the importance of early detection in the fight against the disease and to raise funds for breast cancer research and treatment. The pink patches are worn on the agency uniforms during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” in October. The intention of these patches is it create conversation and bring together our local community to raise awareness of breast cancer.  If you’re interested in learning more, as well as what you can do to help, visit the Pink Patch Project’s website to see where you fit in.

In 2022, La Center is joined by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office and the Battle Ground, Ridgefield, and Camas Police Departments also participating in the project, spreading pink patches around the county.
