ROCKWALL, TX – November 29, 2021 — Deputies and officers of the Rockwall County Sheriff’s Office are getting scruffy for a great cause this month as they participate in No Shave November.
Those in the agency growing out their beards for the program have donated a minimum of $25 to St. Jude Children’s Hospital or any other approved charity to raise awareness for cancer treatment programs and those affected by it. The Sheriff’s Office has so far raised more than $1,400 for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
“Our Deputies were enthusiastic about getting involved in a worthy cause such as St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital,” said Rockwall County Sheriff Terry Garrett. “The No Shave November also turned into a bit of a camaraderie competition with our personnel. Some poking fun also took place as several were pointed out by the lighter color whiskers in their beard.”
Tomorrow, Nov. 30th, Blue Ribbon News is excited to judge a No Shave November contest at the Sheriff’s Office to crown the best beard! Stay tuned to our Facebook page for a Facebook Live of the contest.
