Are You Brave Enough To Wear PINK!
Carroll County Firefighters will swap their blue T-shirts for pink ones during the month of October in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
But the T-shirts aren't just for Firefighters. The public can also purchase a Carroll County Fire Rescue pink T-shirt at any of the Carroll County fire stations or at Carroll County Fire Rescue Headquarters. . The T-shirts are available in sizes S – XL for $15, and 2X – 3X are $17. All of the proceeds from the t-shirt sales will be donated to the Tanner Medical Foundation Mammogram Assistance Fund.
This marks the second year Carroll County Firefighters have worn pink T-shirts through the month of October. Last year Carroll County Firefighters raised over $800 that was used to assist local women afford the cost of mammograms. This year we are hoping to be able to help more.
T-shirts must be pre-ordered and paid for before September 1 in order to guarantee delivery by October. If you need additional information or would like to place an order please call Carroll County Fire Rescue headquarters at 770-830-5880 or come by at 501 Old Newnan Road in Carrollton.
