City of Gaffney firefighters will once again be wearing pink during the month of October to show their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

While the cause is near and dear to everyone’s heart, firefighters have some additional motivation this year. Included in the pink-colored design on the back of their special T-shirts are the call numbers of two Gaffney firefighters who have been waging their own war against cancer.

In addition to wearing the shirts throughout the month, the City of Gaffney Fire Department will be selling the Tshirts as part of a charitable fundraiser. Fire Chief Jamie Caggiano said the shirts are available in all sizes, from kid’s to 3X. Cost is $15 per shirt and they can be purchased during normal business hours at the Gaffney Fire Department headquarters on North Limestone Street.
