SUMMIT, NJ - The Pink Heals Tour rolled into the Hilltop City, making a stop at Overlook Medical Center and at Summit Fire Department Headquarters.

Operated by non-profit Pink Heals, Inc., the Tour is a program that partners with Public Safety, local businesses and families to bring a community together, providing home visits to individuals suffering from any illness or struggle, showing them that they are loved, cherished and important to others.

Pink Heals "celebrates people, not causes."

The Summit visit was part of a national tour that visits a different town virtually every day of every month, zigzagging across America.

The Pink Heals National Tour operates by the sale of merchandise, gifts and in kind donations to maintain its vehicles, buy gas and travel across the country to visit individuals and share the program. Tour drivers volunteer up to 21 days at a time to drive pink fire trucks and police cars across the country, delivering the Pink Heals Program to communities.

Local chapters use pink fire trucks and police cars as a visual reminder that people matter. Chapters partner with local businesses for home visits in order to provide visit recipients with donated goods, gift cards and services and to give the employees of those businesses the opportunity to bring joy, love and hope to people in need.
