Upper St. Clair Police Department's No-Shave November Raises More Than $2,000

The normally clean-shaven Upper St. Clair police force grew out their facial hair during November 2021 to raise money for local charity. On Tuesday, Chief Jonathan Wharton and Officer Kevin Forrester presented the Rotary Club of Upper St. Clair-Bethel Park a check in the amount of $2,020.

"We appreciate everything the Rotary does for this community," said Chief Wharton. "The department really wanted to help after the fundraising challenges in 2020."

The club voted to donate the money to Hair Peace Charities, a charity that helps local women and girls with financial assistance to purchase wigs needed due to cancer. The charity was started by Bonny Diver, a traffic reporter for CBS radio who is a cancer survivor. 

Eighteen officers raised funds during No-Shave November and the Upper St. Clair Township manager and assistant manager both supported and donated to the fundraiser.
