Wareham Police donate to Council on Aging after ‘Double Down December’
After raising $3,600 for Community Youth Empowerment during the annual “No Shave November” event, the Wareham Police Department gave its officers the chance to continue the event into December, as part of “Double Down December.”
In November, a total of 36 officers donated money to CYE for the privilege of letting their facial hair grow — for male officers — or dyeing their hair — for female officers.
A number of officers opted to continue their participation into December and donated money to the Wareham Council on Aging.
In total, the officers raised $1,000. Council on Aging Director Missy Dziczek accepted the department’s donation on Thursday, Dec. 16.
