Pink Patch Project raises $8,075 for local cancer center

Posted: Updated:

A local health care center is benefiting from the "Pink Patch Project."

Police officers in Grover Beach and at Cuesta College donned pink patches in October to raise awareness about breast cancer. The officers paid $10 for each patch.
On Wednesday, the Grover Beach Police Officers' Association donated $7,000 to the Hearst Cancer Resource Center in San Luis Obispo. Cuesta College Safety Services donated $1,075.

"Everything that we run through our center is free, so it's very important for us to continue on with this program, to have the community support us," said Beverly Kirkhart, Hearst Cancer Resource Center Director. "We've been so lucky to be in a community that supports all of these services."

The money will reportedly be used to help further cancer research, treatment and care of those battling cancer and their families.
