A T-shirt fundraiser campaign organized by the city fire department raised $3,600 for the Norma Pfriem Breast Center.
Norma Pfriem Breast Center, based at Smilow Cancer Hospital in New Haven, has locations in Bridgeport, Fairfield and Trumbull. The center provides a network of services for breast health and wellness. This is a fundraising effort the department has done for a few years, according to Fire Chief Richard Thode. The campaign runs during October — Breast Cancer Awareness Month. He said the campaign was started by members and officers of Engine and Ladder 10. Engine and Ladder 10 designed a T-shirt and sold it to members of the Bridgeport Fire Department.
