October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
You may notice that our uniforms look a little different this month. DES will be wearing specially designed uniforms in support of breast cancer awareness. These uniforms were designed and paid for by Caroline County DES personnel, and all proceeds from the sale were donated to Women Supporting Women in Salisbury, MD, a local non-profit organization that supports women fighting breast cancer.
