To show support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, the East Peoria Fire Department is selling breast cancer awareness T-shirts. All proceeds will be donated to Susan G. Komen Memorial.
The navy blue shirts are available to the public and feature a pink East Peoria Fire Department logo on the front and “East Peoria Fire, fired up for a cure” on the back, featuring a firefighter helmet, breathing mask, axes and angel wings, all in pink. The design was created by East Peoria resident Phyllis Piraino.
The T-shirts are available at EastSide Centre, 1 EastSide Drive, through Sept. 18 and all orders must be prepaid. The T-shirts cost $15 each. Adult sizes available range from small through 5-extra-large. Children’s sizes range from small through extra-large.
Long-sleeve T-shirts cost $18 and come in adult sizes small through 3-extra-large, and children’s sizes small through extra-large.
Those paying by check should make it payable to City of East Peoria.
The fire department will submit the orders on Sept. 19 and the shirts can be picked up at EastSide after Oct. 1.
