WATERLOO — Beginning Wednesday and running through the end of the month, deputies and sheriff’s office employees will sport a new look to support a local worthy cause.
In observance of the No-Shave November movement seen across the nation, the Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office will allow employees to “violate” policy and go unshaven for the month to raise money for Waterloo’s UnityPoint Community Cancer Treatment Center.
“No-Shave November was originally established to honor and raise funds for cancer treatment and research,” said Sheriff Tony Thompson. “In the Cedar Valley, we are blessed with some outstanding cancer treatment facilities, and this year we decided to provide our funds to UnityPoint’s Cancer Treatment Center.
“We recognize that cancer sucks and the providers working with those diagnosed with cancer are true professionals doing great work here in the Cedar Valley. ... the Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office is proud to partner with this outstanding organization and provide these funds in this unique fundraiser this year.”
