The Wright State University Police Department is participating in No-Shave November and officers’ follicle neglect is benefiting the Raider Food Pantry.
On Nov. 14, officers donated nonperishable food items, including contained chicken noodle soup, cereal, peanut butter crackers and Stove Top stuffing, to the Raider Food Pantry.
“The timing is great because we are doing a big Thanksgiving Day basket give-away,” said Ri Molnar, a graduate student who works in the pantry, an emergency food service pantry that supports students and their families.
University police raised $400 for their participation in No-Shave November. Male officers are able to grow facial hair while female officers can color strands of hair and their nails.
“I’ve never done this before,” said Kurt Holden, pointing to his facial hair. “But I’m going to do it every year because it’s a way to start a conversation and get involved with the campus.”
Information about supporting the Raider Food Pantry is available on the organization’s website.
