East Peoria Fire Department news

Excerpts from 25newsnow.com:

The East Peoria Fire Department is offering a way to help in the fight against breast cancer by working to sell T-shirts donned with pink ribbons, and a pink logo. They’re doing this ahead of October, which is recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The proceeds will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Memorial.

The shirts also honor a survivor in the community, by incorporating their initials. The survivor wishes to remain anonymous, but is someone who is known to, or has impacted those at the fire department.

Firefighter paramedic Tyler Young says having the shirts pay respect to a survivor this year was a new idea compared to years past. They hope to continue honoring those who have overcome breast cancer. “We figured what better year to start it than this year? And hopefully going forward in the future we would like to see other shirts be in honor to somebody else that may be known to the City of East Peoria residents.”

The deadline to order a shirt is midnight September 4th. If you’re interested in supporting the cause, a link to the shirts can be found on The East Peoria Fire Department’s Facebook page.
