Batavia Police Department to participate in MO-vember
The City of Batavia Police Department and Batavia Police Benevolent Association will once again commence their annual MO-vember Campaign (AKA No-Shave November) to recognize men’s health awareness during the month of November.
Officers will donate in order to participate in the campaign and all proceeds collected will once again be donated to Genesee Cancer Assistance, a local 501(c)3 not for profit, helping cancer patients and their families living in Genesee County through their individual journeys by providing financial and other assistance.
In their efforts to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health, you will see officers sporting a mustache, goatee, or full beard -- a first for the campaign. Normally, according to Police regulations, officers are only allowed to sport a gentlemanly mustache. This year, Chief Shawn Heubusch has allowed officers to also grow a goatee or full beard, for a higher donation level.
“This is a way for our officers to give back to the community and do their part to raise awareness for the issue of men’s health," Heubusch said. "We are encouraging others to donate to such a great cause."
You can get involved by making a donation for the 2016 MO-vember Campaign by stopping at the Batavia Police Department, located at 10 West Main Street or Genesee Cancer Assistance located in their new office, in the lower level of United Memorial Medical Center, 127 North Street, or online at www.geneseecancerassistance.com.
Please ensure you earmark your donation for the 2016 Batavia Police MO-vember Campaign.
Keep watch on the Batavia Police Department Facebook page where you will be able to vote for your favorite display of follicular excellence upon the faces of our officers. Any questions about the campaign can be directed to Officer Frank Klimjack.
