(Tuesday, November 14th) Ne Philadelphia, Ohio – A campaign to raise money for the Hospice House in New Philadelphia is proving successful among the local police department.

New Philadelphia Police Chief Michael Goodwin said No Shave November is a fun way to give back.

“We’re still growing beards,” explained Goodwin. “We’re doing that throughout this month and we’ve actually had people come into the station that say ‘hey, we hear what you’re doing and we want to donate also.”

Chief Goodwin also approved dispatchers to wear plain clothes throughout the campaign this much as well.

He notes the department has raised roughly $700 so far.
