In a bold move, Slidell Police Chief Randy Fandal wrapped a police car in pink to raise awareness and money for Breast Cancer Awareness month. The pink police car, clad with breast cancer awareness ribbons, will hit the streets of Slidell today.
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 Slidell Memorial Hospital’s Cancer Center.
Slidell Police Chief Randy Fandal said the pink police car will serve a great purpose by raising awareness and funding for research. 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.
