Hakettstown police, Hackettstown-Mansfield PBA raise $2,400 with ‘Beards in Blue’ fundraiser

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – Hackettstown Police Department and the Hackettstown-Mansfield PBA Local 369 raised $2,400 through our “Beards In Blue” Fundraiser.
 
Hackettstown Police Officers put down their razors during November and grew facial hair to support The Joan Knechel Cancer Center at Atlantic Health System/Hackettstown Medical Center.
 
In the last four years, they’ve raised over $10,000 for the Joan Knechel Cancer Center.
 
Their anti-shave campaign was meant to raise cancer awareness and encourage people to live healthy lives and get regular medical checkups. Cancer research and treatments are very costly, and we wanted to lend as much help as possible to those who are fighting for a cure.

The police department and PBA thanked those who donated and they look forward to participating and raising more funds next year.
