PBA Supports Cancer Group By Not Shaving

By on December 1, 2017

Verona PBA Local 72For the first time ever, members from Verona Police PBA Local 72 put down their foamy shaving cream and their extremely overpriced sharp-edged razors and participated in No-Shave November 2017.

No-Shave November is a web-based non-profit organization that raises cancer awareness and funds to support cancer prevention, research, and education. While many cancer patients lose their hair during treatment, supporters of No-Shave November let theirs grow and donate the money they might have otherwise spent on grooming.

Verona police officers raised $1,670. The funds were then presented to the Minette’s Angels Foundation, a Verona-based non-profit. The Foundation provides assistance to those in treatment, supports research and promotes breast health awareness. It also offers scholarships to second-year nursing students at Seton Hall University’s College of Nursing and to Verona students entering the medical field, placing a priority on nursing majors.

“It’s an awesome charity to donate too and I will be participating next year, but having a full beard is way too itchy for me”, said Det. TJ Conroy who participated in the event.
