In a BOLD, unprecedented move, Slidell Police Chief Randy Fandal wrapped a police car in pink to raise awareness and money for Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Starting tomorrow, the pink police car, clad with breast cancer awareness ribbons, will hit the streets of Slidell. For a suggested minimum donation of $5, citizens will have the opportunity to sign the car with their name, the name of someone battling cancer, a cancer survivor, or in memory of a loved one. A locked box will be available inside of the car for cash donations, or people can donate via a GoFundMe account (Slidell Police Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign). All proceeds will go to our local Slidell Memorial Hospital Cancer Center.
Slidell Police Chief Randy Fandal says, “After talking to several breast cancer survivors, this gesture is meaningful to so many people and will bring our community together. We all know someone who currently has or had breast cancer. One in eight women will develop this terrible disease. This pink police car will serve a great purpose by raising awareness and funding for research. I am happy to be a part of this project. It truly is awesome."
The non-profit organization, Friends of the Slidell Police Foundation, is a primary sponsor for this project and covered the full cost of the materials used to wrap the police unit. Tommy St. Clair of GotchaDecals.com designed the artwork and donated his time and labor for this project.
The police car will make appearances at different businesses and locations around the Slidell area. A schedule will be periodically listed on the Slidell Police Department’s Facebook Page. A combination of several different Slidell Police officers will have an opportunity to drive the police car. We encourage people to take pictures with car and use the hashtag #SlidellPDBreastCancerAwareness
