BECKLEY, WV (WOAY)- Twenty-three members of the Beckley Police Department will be participating for the first time in “No Shave November.”
The rules of No Shave November are simple; put down your razor and donate your monthly hair maintenance expenses to the “Cause.”
This is a unique way to grow cancer awareness in our community.
For this first year we have chosen to partner with WV Kids “Cancer Crusaders”
WV Kids Cancer Crusaders is a community of children, families, individuals, organizations, medical professionals and caregivers with interest in creating awareness, advocating, and providing support and resources for all those West Virginians affected by young adult, adolescence and childhood cancer.
The goal of No Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose and to raise money for a great organization.
The Beckley Police Department will be allowed to start letting their beards grow beginning Thursday November 1st, and will be back to normal on Thursday , December 6th 2018
A friendly “best beard” or “favorite beard” competition will be promoted on-line in an effort to raise additional money for a great organization and cause.
To vote for your favorite officer or officers for the best beard you can make an on-line monetary donation of your choice at: https://beckley.org/beckley-police-department-no-shave-november-fundraiser/?fbclid=IwAR2fdsZ8q-YxfJbg4s59mI2ZNWyu2epxHJZCjP16Ond0X_6zmQr30HgBT0E
The department will upload progress photos weekly!
