MADERA COUNTY – Have you noticed the pink patches on the uniforms of Madera County Sheriff’s personnel this month? It’s time to get one of your own!
The Sheriff’s Office is excited to be officially partnering with the @pinkpatchproject this year to sell their patches to the public, and will be donating proceeds to the Clovis Cancer Institute (https://www.communitymedical.org/cancer).
Lt. Patrick Majeski designed this year’s patch, which was chosen by command staff and Sheriff Jay Varney from several design submissions.
The Pink Patch Project began with the Irwindale Police Department and the message has spread. There are now over 400 agencies participating in the project and working to combat breast cancer by raising public awareness about the importance of early detection, and raising funds for breast cancer research and treatment.
This is the department’s second year participating in the project, and their first year selling their patches to the public. Sheriff’s personnel will be wearing the pink patches through the end of October, and patches and keychains will be available until supplies run out.
To get your Madera County Sheriff’s Office pink patch ($10) or keychain ($5), stop by the Sheriff’s Substation at 48267 Liberty Drive in Oakhurst, or at the Records Window at Sheriff’s headquarters at 2725 Falcon Drive in Madera, Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
You can also obtain a pink patch by mail – just send a check or money order made payable to the “Madera DSA” for $10 and a self-addressed stamped envelope to:
Madera County Sheriff’s Office
Attn: Lt. Patrick Majeski
2725 Falcon Dr. Madera, CA. 93637
