Chief David Hart joined Linden Police Benevolent Association Local #42 President Joseph Appello and Linden Police Superior Officers Association President Joseph Birch to announce that the Department will once again participate in “No Shave November” and “Nails for November.”
No-Shave November is a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness. “Nails for November” is an alternative for female employees wishing to participate.
The Department first participated in the event in 2018 and has since donated $10,000 to selected charities.
“No-Shave November/ Nails for November is a fun and creative way to raise cancer awareness,” said Chief Hart. “It has really “grown” on us, and across the board, we really look forward to participating each year.”
All of the money raised will benefit the Men’s Health Network, Men's Health Network (MHN) is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to reach men, boys, and their families where they live, work, play, and pray with health awareness and disease prevention messages and tools, screening programs, educational materials, advocacy opportunities, and patient navigation. Learn more at the [**Men's Health Network website**](https://www.menshealthnetwork.org/).
Participation is voluntary, and donations may be made without participation. Members of the public are invited to show their support by making a donation.
Checks or money orders made payable to Linden PBA Local 42, RE: MHN will be accepted at the Police desk any time during the month of November. A receipt will be given for each donation, but unfortunately, Cash Donations cannot be accepted.
