Middletown, NY – The Port Jervis Police Department announced its participation in the No Shave November fundraising initiative. All proceeds will benefit Orange Regional Medical Center’s Spagnoli Family Cancer Center.
The goal of No Shave November is to increase awareness by embracing the growth of hair, which many cancer patients lose. Through this initiative, it is requested that the money usually spent on shaving and grooming for a month be donated to a cancer program or cause to assist with education about cancer prevention, to help save lives, and to aid those fighting the battle.
The Port Jervis Police Department encourages all community members to participate by growing a beard, cultivating a mustache, skip shaving their legs and canceling waxing appointments. However, if letting all your hair grow is not possible, they are accepting donations of any amount to sponsor and or support their commitment to No Shave November.
Anyone who wishes to make a donation can do so by visiting the Port Jervis Police Department headquarters, located at 20 Hammond Street, Port Jervis, NY, or by mail to the same address. Make checks payable to the “Port Jervis PBA”.
Donations can also be made online by visiting Orange Regional Medical Center’s Foundation page at www.ormc.org/GiveNow and clicking on No Shave November.
