West Columbia, SC (October 31, 2018 at 4:40 PM) – The West Columbia Police Department (WCPD) is growing hair to raise money for No-Shave.org (benefitting Colorectal Cancer Research, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, and Prevent Cancer Foundation) and the West Columbia Police Officers Foundation. Beginning Thursday, November 1, 2018, thirty-five members of WCPD will begin growing their beards or goatees and donating $1 per day to raise funds for these causes, waiving the department’s grooming policy.
Members of the public and surrounding communities are encouraged to donate money to support the WCPD team to continue growing their beards and goatees bringing awareness to Cancer Research. Donations can be mailed or delivered to: City of West Columbia, P.O. Box 4044, West Columbia, SC 29171 (Make your donation check to either No-Shave November or WCPOF).
Assistant Chief Scott Morrison said, “It is a great way to raise money for two worthy causes while allowing our officers to do something that is out of the norm and fun for our department. I encourage others in the community to support our officers by donating.”
The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free. Donate the money you typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle. Retrieved from https://no-shave.org.
