FTPD ‘Pink Car’ For Breast Cancer Fundraising Debuted

The second iteration of the Franklin Township Police Department’s “pink car” was officially unveiled Oct. 10.

Representatives from the police department, township officials and members of the Sister2Sister Network – the non-profit organization benefiting from the FTPD’s “Pink Patch” fundraising program – were on hand for what’s become an annual event.

The pink car is an FTPD detective’s vehicle that has been wrapped in pink for the whole of October, in honor of Breast Cancer month. Sponsored by FTPD PBA 154, the Far Hills Race Meeting Association and PNC Bank.

The PBA is also selling t-shirts to benefit Sister2Sister; teh shirts are $15 each or two for $25.

Sister2Sister is an organization formed to offer support to women – especially women in underserved and under-insured communities – who are going through the breast cancer treatment process. The help ranges from financial aid for things such as paying utility bills to group meetings to offer emotional support.

Later in the day, the Township Council presented a commendation to Sister2Sister for their work in helping breast cancer patients and survivors.
