For the Month of November, Bristol Police officers took part in No Shave November and were able to raise $ 3775.00 to donate to Relay for Life of Bristol.
No-Shave November is an annual event that takes place in the month of November, similarly to that of Movember.
The event encourages men, and women, to forego shaving during the entirety of the month and donate the money that would have been spent for shaving equipment to charity.
No-Shave November’s mission is “a web-based, non-profit organization devoted to growing cancer awareness and raising funds to support cancer prevention, research, and education.” This happens with the help of embracing one’s hair, wherever it may grow, and letting it go wild.
Additionally, on Thursday, December 7 Chief Brian Gould, Lt. Rich Guerrera, Officers Peter Sassu and Ryan Kosiba took part in Shop with a Cop.
Shop with a Cop is law enforcement teaming up with the REACH Foundation to provide a fun-filled day for a number of children in need throughout Connecticut while creating positive relationships with law enforcement.
