The Washington County Sheriff’s Office participated in No Shave November and raised funds for a local non-profit in the process. The 15 officers and jailers that participated asked for donations and collected a total of $2,238 for Hospice of Washington County. Deputy Sheriff Nolan Burke states that Sheriff Jerry Dunbar allowed those who participated to grow facial hair for one month and in return those involved raised money. The funds will be used for patient care. Burke stated that he hopes to do the program again next year.
