LACEY – Lacey Police will be breaking protocol this November, but at least it’s for a good cause.
Beginning November 1, Lacey Police and Emergency Services will once again be participating in “No Shave November” to raise awareness and funds for cancer. Members from the Forked River, Lanoka Harbor, and Bamber Lakes Fire Departments, Lacey and Lanoka Harbor EMS, and the Lacey Township Dive Team will also partake in the fundraising challenge.
True to its name, “No Shave November” will run throughout the month, ending on November 30.
Normally police officers are clean shaven while on duty, but “No Shave November” allows these local officers to get a “little hairy” for a good cause. For example, you may see uniformed police officers sporting beards and mustaches, all in the name of fighting cancer.
All funds raised during “No Shave November” will benefit charities including Prevent Cancer Foundation, Fight Colorectal Cancer, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Lacey Township Police and the Emergency Services are not taking donations directly. Donations should be made directly to No-Shave.org under the Lacey Township Challenge.
Visit the site and donate to help Lacey reach its donation goal of $4,000!
“I want to thank Sergeant George Resetar for coordinating this initiative. Additionally, I want to thank all of my police officers and the members of the emergency services for their dedication and assistance with this event,” said Chief Michael DiBella. “At the conclusion of this event, the Lacey Township Police Department grooming policy will be back in full effect until next year’s No-Shave November.”
For more information, contact Sergeant George Resetar at the Lacey Township Police Department at 609-693-6636 ext. 2590.
