After a successful pink T-shirt fundraising campaign in October, Memphis, TN Local 1784 members donated proceeds totaling $12,000 to the Wings Cancer Foundation, a local charity assists families of cancer patients.

“We are so thankful to not only our members who wore the shirts on duty, but also to the citizens who bought the shirts,” says Memphis Local 1984 President Tom Malone. “It was because of their generosity that we were able to make this donation to such a worthy cause.”

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Throughout the month, Memphis Local 1784 and hundreds of IAFF affiliates wear pink T-shirts and shirts to raise money and increase awareness for breast cancer charities.
