Fluvanna Sheriff's Office Promoting Cancer Awareness with 'No Shave November'

Posted: Updated:

Fluvanna County Sheriff's Office Press Release

In order to promote cancer awareness, The Fluvanna County Sheriff's Office will be participating in "No Shave November."

Male deputies, who normally must be clean shaven, will be allowed to grow and maintain neatly trimmed facial hair. Participation in this and similar programs is designed specifically to raise prostate cancer awareness.

In order to foster local community involvement, deputies who choose to participate will donate a non-perishable or canned food item for every day they do not shave in order to provide stock to the Fluvanna Food Pantry.

At the end of November, all the food collected will be donated to the food pantry in time for the holidays. A food collection basket will also be placed in the front lobby of the Sheriff's Office should any citizen wish to participate in the food drive.

Lt. David R. Wells
