Randolph Police to Participate in No-Shave November
RANDOLPH — Police Chief William Pace announces that the Randolph Police Department will be participating in No-Shave November to raise money for servicemen and women, veterans and their families.
For 30 days, Randolph police officers will be permitted to grow beards and goatees in exchange for donating $100 to Home Base, a partnership of the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital that works to help service members, veterans and their families heal from invisible wounds — like traumatic brain injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder — regardless of their financial means or discharge status.
Home Base reported that in 2016, 500 first responders across 21 cities in Massachusetts raised more than $50,000 through the No-Shave November campaign.
“We’re thrilled to be raising money for Home Base and supporting service members and their families through a fun initiative like No-Shave November,” Chief Pace said. “I anticipate that many members of the Randolph Police Department will grow out their facial hair for this worthy cause.”
Residents who would like to support Home Base can do so by making a donation at homebase.org.
A ceremonial shave off will occur on Nov. 30, and the total donations from officers and community members will be sent to Home Base.
