To the sorrow of many, the beards are officially coming off the faces of Marion County Sheriff's Deputies. Today 76 Deputy Sheriff's will be breaking out their razors and cleaning their faces for all to see. In all the Sheriff's Office raised $3,040.00, which will be given to the Mathew Hill Foundation who will distribute the money to aid in the fight against cancer.
For the first time in Marion County Sheriff's Office history Deputies are putting down their razors and embracing their ability to grow hair. No Shave November has been declared and Sheriff's Office employees are rising to the challenge of making a donation for the break from that daily chore we all dread.
For $40.00 Sheriff's Office staff can take part in No Shave November. The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free. Deputies will essentially be donating the money what they typically spend on shaving and grooming to help save lives, educate about cancer prevention, and aid those fighting the battle.
Deputies can participate by growing a beard, cultivating a mustache, letting those legs go natural, and skipping that waxing appointment. So we are asking our staff to put down their razors and start growing for a great cause.
All proceeds raised by the Sheriff's Office will be donated directly to "No Shave November." To learn more about the program head to their website at https://no-shave.org/
