Howell police go hairy in the fight against cancer
Howell police aren’t looking scruffy these days because they’re too busy or too lazy to shave. It’s because they care about the fight against prostate cancer, and you’re invited to drop the razor and enter the fundraiser.
Their No-Shave November initiative at crowdrise.com raises money for treatment and research at Centrastate Health in neighboring Freehold.
Uniformed officers, detectives, and even Chief Andrew Kurdick are looking hirsute, with retro ‘staches and lumberjack beards, and bearing up well under the inevitable itch.
According to Detective Sergeant Christian Antunez, the plan is simple: Arrest cancer, throw away the key – and your razor – and contribute to the cause.
Each donor who contributes $50 gets a special invitation to the December unveiling of Howell PD’s first-ever, custom-painted, cancer-fighting cruiser, and to autograph the car personally in honor of someone else.
The car will be a prominent feature at Howell Township Police Department community events. Be sure to bring your receipt or e-mailed confirmation of your donation in order to sign the Cancer-Fighter.
