No Shave November & December

“No Shave November & December” 
 
 
Narrative: 
 
In November and December of this year Sheriff Bailey authorized members of the Berrien County Sheriff’s Office to participate in “No Shave November and December.”  In order to participate in this event members of the Sheriff’s Office had to pay $50.00 each month which was donated to a selected charity.  The Sheriff’s Office partnered with the Berrien Community Foundation in providing these funds to the charities.  
 
For the month of November the charity that was selected was Carol’s Hope.  Carol’s Hope provides a supervised and supportive setting for individuals with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders.  Fifty-four (54) members of the Sheriff’s Office participated in the “No Shave November” raising a total of $2,700.00.  Sheriff Bailey met with Carol Stockman on December 17, 2019 to present her with the check. 
 
For the month of December the charity that was selected was the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Michigan.  Each year, the Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunge series challenges thousands of brave jumpers at numerous locations around the state.  All funds raised go towards yearround sports training and athletic competition for nearly 23,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities in Michigan.  Forty-Nine (49) members of the Sheriff’s Office participated in the “No Shave December” raising a total of $2,450.00.  These funds will be donated towards the Berrien County Sheriff’s Office team that will be taking the plunge on February 1, 2020 at the Watermark Brewing Company.
