PLAINFIELD, IN-This November the Plainfield Police Department will be raising funds and awareness in support of Jack Moon, a 12 year old Plainfield Community Middle School student who is currently battling advanced type B non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Since orange is the color of the lymphoma/leukemia awareness ribbon, beginning today officers and employees are encouraged to wear orange undershirts beneath their uniforms and to display orange ribbons on their uniforms in support of Jack’s fight.
As an agency we are raising funds by selling orange #JackMoonStrong window clings that mimic the Plainfield Police Department shoulder patch. The window clings are $5 each, and are available Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 am and 5:00 pm at the Plainfield Police Department headquarters building located at 1075 West Main Street. While other fundraising efforts are being planned, all funds raised by our officers who will be participating in “No Shave November” will also be directed toward the cause. All proceeds from the sale of the window clings will directly benefit Jack Moon and his family to help them offset the costs associated with his ongoing treatment.
As a law enforcement agency, our primary objective will always be the safety and security of our community, the Plainfield Police Department is also committed to seeking opportunities to support and engage citizens of the Town of Plainfield in ways that are not typical law enforcement activities.
