Local police participating in No Shave November

Conway Police Department Officer Clint Evans is growing his beard out to raise money in support of No Shave November.

Law enforcement throughout Faulkner County are growing out their facial hair as part of No Shave November to raise money for local charities.

 

Conway Police Department is participating in No Shave November for the second year.

“They are growing goatees and mustaches to raise money for the American Cancer Society of Faulkner County,” spokesman LaTresha Woodruff said.

Residents can opt to sponsor participating officers and provide donations to go toward the charities selected by the departments.

Woodruff said anyone wishing to donate is asked to call Lt. Casey Dun at 501-450-6120.

Guy and Mayflower are among other departments participating in No Shave November this year.

Guy Police Chief Chris Humphrey said donations will be accepted through Dec. 1 and all donations will go to the Ronald McDonald House in Little Rock.

“We wanted to keep this a little closer in house and felt like the Ronald McDonald House is a great organization,” he said.

To leave a donation, residents can stop by city hall.

Mayflower Police Chief Robert Alcon said currently one officer is growing his beard out in support of No Shave November but that residents are welcome to donate toward the cause.

Money raised will go toward the city’s Shop With A Cop program, and will be used to buy a needy Mayflower student Christmas gifts.

To leave a donation, residents are asked to stop by the Mayflower Police Department.
