No Shave November Fundraiser to Benefit Orange Regional Medical Center’s Spagnoli Family Cancer Center

The Port Jervis Police Department announced its participation in the No Shave November fundraising initiative. The fundraiser will be held in honor of retired Sergeant and colleague, Gary Maillet, who worked for the department and recently passed away from pancreatic cancer.

Gary served in many capacities on the Police Department, including President of the Police Benevolent Association for many years.  He was appointed a patrolman on March 31, 1975, and served in that position until his promotion to sergeant on July 10, 1984.  e went on to retire as a sergeant from the Police Department after 20 years of service in 1995.

Gary will always be remembered as a caring husband, father and grandfather who was completely devoted to his family and a true friend to many. His conversations always included his daughters and how proud he was of their accomplishments and of course his four grandchildren.

How to Participate and Donate to Our ‘No Shave November’ Fundraiser

The No Shave November fundraiser will run from November 12 to December 12, 2017. 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.

Make A Donation

The Port Jervis Police Department encourages community participation by growing a beard, cultivating a mustache; skip shaving the 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.

In Person or By Mail to the Port Jervis Police Department

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”.
