Beards benefit charity.

HART – If you’ve noticed that some of our local police officers have been looking a little scruffy, it’s because they participated in “No Shave November” to raise money for the Crystal Valley Care Fund.

Oceana County Sheriff Craig Mast challenged his deputies and officers to quit shaving through the month of November. Those in “violation” of the department’s clean shaven policy had to pay a minimum fee of $75 for “violating” the policy.

This year, the sheriff’s office raised $1,245 and presented the funds that will go to CVCF to Dawn Riley Tuesday, Nov. 27.

The sheriff’s office chose CVCF because the organization “has a special place in our hearts,” Mast said. “They’ve helped a lot of people in the community, including some of our own.”

OCSO raised $1,200 last year that also went to the Crystal Valley Care Fund. CVCF, established in 1992, is a non-profit organization that helps Oceana County families in need due to a house fire or catastrophic illness.
