All proceeds will benefit Orange Regional Medical Center’s Spagnoli Family Cancer Center. The goal of No Shave November is to increase awareness by embracing the growth of hair, which many cancer patients lose. Through this initiative, it is requested that the money usually spent on shaving and grooming for a month be donated to a cancer program or cause to assist with education about cancer prevention, to help save lives, and to aid those fighting the battle. The Port Jervis Police Dept encourages all community members to participate in growing a beard, cultivating a mustache, and skip shaving or cancel waxing appt! If growing your hair is not possible, anyone who wished to make a donation can do so by visiting the PJ Police HQ at 20 Hammond Street in Port Jervis or make checks to Port Jervis PBA and mail to the HQ .
