PBA Local 342, which is comprised of officers from Hopewell Township and Pennington Borough, are participating in No-Shave November. This annual event, in which the participants donate money and grow out their beards, raises funds and awareness of cancer by embracing a person's hair, which many cancer patients lose during their journey. Participants donate the money they typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle.
This year the proceeds will benefit the Jilly Bean Foundation, a non-profit organization that raises money to help women and families affected by breast cancer. The Foundation was started in memory of Jill Lecorchick, who lost her battle against cancer at the young age of 32.
If you would like to contribute to the officers' efforts, a donation can be made to PBA Local 342.
