WILDWOOD CREST — A Pink Out fundraiser coordinated by the borough Wellness Committee has donated $2,147 to Love of Linda, a Cape May County nonprofit organization that raises funds for families dealing with the effects of cancer.
Wellness Committee coordinator Nick Holland of the Wildwood Crest Recreation Department spearheaded a T-shirt drive among borough employees in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October 2020. Employees made donations in exchange for a pink T-shirt that could be worn to work each Friday during the month of October. Pink T-shirts were also made available for purchase by members of the public through the end of the 2020 calendar year.
Members of the Wildwood Crest Police Department also made separate donations to the effort.
Holland presented the money collected through the Pink Out fundraiser to Dan Petela and Margaret Clark of the Love of Linda organization on Thursday, Jan. 14.
