For a small donation from Altoona police officers and staff, they have the option of wearing a pink shoulder patch on their uniform (recognizing the Pink Patch Project https://www.facebook.com/pinkpatchproject/ ) or growing facial hair (similar to No Shave November).
All donations will be given to the Stoddard Compassion Fund HYPERLINK "https://www.unitypoint.org/desmoi…/rally-against-cancer.aspx" https://www.unitypoint.org/desmoi…/rally-against-cancer.aspx.
If citizens want to support this effort, they can donate directly to Unity Point at HYPERLINK "http://www.unitypoint.org/desmoines/make-a-gift.aspx" http://www.unitypoint.org/desmoines/make-a-gift.aspx.
Cops always have a plan when we resolve a problem. Like your police department, remember to take steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.
