For the past several years, the Longmont Fire Department has worn special uniform shirts in October to promote breast cancer awareness month. In 2016, these shirts will take on a different look, thanks to a great partnership with the St. Vrain Valley School District and Silver Creek High School.
This past spring, the fire department teamed up with a graphic design class at Silver Creek High School to come up with a new design for our t-shirts. Seven groups of high-schoolers competed against each other in a process that was guided by their teacher and fire department personnel. All of the designs were so creative, we had a hard time choosing one!
In addition to this partnership with SVVSD, the fire department will also be allowing the public to purchase these same uniform shirts with all proceeds going to the Boulder Valley Women's Health Center. The Women's Health Center provides breast cancer screenings to those who may not be able to afford it, mostly through donations.
