The Bristol Virginia Sheriff’s Department and Bristol Virginia Police Department teamed up to raise more than $2,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Sheriff David Maples and Chief John Austin recognized members of their respective departments who participated in the joint “No Shave November” fundraising effort.
“No Shave November” has become a tradition for both departments with the participants getting together and agreeing on the donation recipient each year. This year, St. Jude was chosen for its efforts to eradicate childhood cancers. At month’s end, the groups gather to celebrate the best and worst beards, best try and a group photo.
