NPD Growing Beards for Cash

The Newport Police Department has begun its second “No Shave” charity event. Members of the department have been permitted to grow out their beards from Nov. 1 through March 1, 2019.

Department personnel who chose to participate in the event will be making a donation to be split between a number of local charities. In conjunction with this fundraising effort, the Newport Fraternal Order of Police will make an additional donation for each member that participates in the event. The charities receiving donations this year include No Shave November, Newport Police Explorer Program, Police Unity Tour Special Olympics RI, Autism Project, and Home Base Foundation.

Those interested in making a donation to the event can email Sgt. Gregory Belcher at gbelcher@cityofnewport.com.
