No Shave November began as an effort by the Hudson Police Department to raise cancer awareness by embracing the hair that many cancer patients lose during treatment. This year, the Hudson Police Department (HPD) put down their razors and raised money for Hudson Community Foundation to distribute to The Vincent William Baran Charitable Fund. HPD extended the program to run from October 2021 through March 2022.
Officers donated to the effort if they wanted to grow a beard from October through March of next year. In addition to police officers, other staff at HPD, such as the dispatchers and administration, donated to ditch their uniforms for HPD shirts or hoodies on Fridays. As a result, HPD collected $3,390 for The Vincent William Baran Charitable Fund.
“This is fun way to raise money for a very important cause,” said Police Chief Perry Tabak. “We had nearly 100% participation, and I appreciate everyone who participated in No Shave November to help us give back to the community.”
