Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Supports Cancer Patients
Law enforcement officers often find themselves in difficult situations in the course of their work. During the unshaven month of November, things will get even hairier for the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) when they throw in the razor or grab a bottle of crazy colored hair dye in defiance of the standard grooming requirements of the office – all for the benefit of local cancer patients.
The goal of the November National No-Shave is to “grow” cancer awareness by kissing her hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free.
Participating LCSO staff will donate to one of the cancer funds supported by the Pacific Communities Health District Foundation. Those who donate at least $ 50 for the effort have the right to remain unshaven or have their hair colored until the end of December.
As an added incentive, LCSO’s Prison and Patrol Divisions are vying for the privilege of keeping their beards (or colored hair) for an additional month, until the end of January, based on total donations. .
You can help support this effort. Go here to donate. All you need to do is select one of the three cancer funds: CAN Cancer, Cancer Care or Women’s Cancer. You can even take a note to support an LCSO staff member you may know by name, or you can indicate the prison or patrol to support those LCSO divisions.
