The Morris County Sheriff’s Office will be donating $1,500 to the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center at Morristown Medical Center thanks to the efforts of some of its officers who wore custom designed pink patches on their uniforms in October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The pink patches personally were purchased by officers from the Morris County Sheriff’s Office to raise the $1,500.
Similarly, in 2017, more than $1,400 was raised during the same event, bringing the combined total in two years to more than $2,900.
The Sheriff’s Office will donate the proceeds to the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center in memory of Detective Lisa di Palma Bonfiglio who lost her battle with cancer in 2009.
The Morris County Sheriff’s Office joined numerous police and fire departments across the country in this annual fundraising effort to fight cancer and support breast cancer research.
Thank you officers!
