Sheriff's Office

[ARCHIVED] "No-shave" November starts at the Sheriff's Office

SGT Beard

Last year was a first for the Washington County Sheriff’s Office as deputies were allowed to grow beards for a one month period. The Deputy Sheriff’s PBA has once again approached Sheriff Jeffrey Murphy with a "no-shave" fundraising request with all proceeds going to Toys for Tots.

Last year's effort was in honor of friend and colleague, Sergeant Tommy Golden who had passed away. Sgt. Golden was well known locally for his efforts with the Toys for Tots program. Beards typically aren’t allowed at the Sheriff’s Office but after learning about the fundraiser, the Sheriff agreed allow it for a one month period and last year the PBA raised just over $1,000 for the Toys for Tots Program.

No-shave November has typically been associated with men’s health awareness. The Deputy Sheriff’s PBA hopes this year's no-shave effort will earn even more money for Toys for Tots.

Each officer will pay an entry fee and will look to get sponsors to “help” their beard grow throughout the month. The PBA will also make a donation to the cause. You can help the cause too, monetary donations can be sent to the PBA at:

Washington County Deputy Sheriff’s Police Benevolent Association
399 Broadway
Fort Edward, New York 12828
(No-shave November fundraiser)

At the end of the month, the PBA will present all proceeds that were raised to Toys for Tots and we hope it's an even bigger amount than last year.
