Cherry Hill Police Department's bearded officers raised over $3,500.
CHERRY HILL, N.J. -
Police officers in Camden County have officially shaved off November.
With the start of December comes the end of No-Shave November, and officers with the Cherry Hill Police Department lined up at the Le Reve Salon and Barbershop on Friday, December 1st, to say goodbye their their beards and mustaches.
The salon invited the scruffy officers to their "Bare It" event offering up free hot shaves.
Officials with the Cherry Hill Police Department say it was a great way for everyone to get in on the action of raising awareness about cancer.
"Anything we can do to bring awareness, it gives them a sense that they're participating and they're doing their part, while at the same time allowing us to culminate the event in a special way," said John Ostermueller, vice president of the Cherry Hill PBA 176.
In total, the Cherry Hill Police Department's bearded officers raised more than $3,500, which will help support various organizations, including the American Cancer Society, St. Jude Children's Hospital, and the Prevent Cancer Foundation.
