The New Paltz Police Officers that participated in American Cancer Society Fund Raiser, “No-Shave November” once again reached their goal and then some.  This is the fourth year that the New Paltz Police Department team participated in this great event and set a goal of $3,800.  This year we raised $5,030 with Chief Joe Snyder raising the most, $1,815 on his own.    

The goal of No-Shave November is to increase public awareness of the fight against cancer.  Many cancer patients lose their hair as a result of treatments, so we letting our hair grow wild and free in support of cancer patients and survivors.  Money normally spent on shaving and grooming for the month will be donated to the American Cancer Society to educate about cancer prevention, save lives and aid those fighting the battle. 

“This was another successful fundraiser and I appreciate the efforts of our members as well as everyone that donated to support our team and more importantly the American Cancer Society.”  “This was our fourth year participating in this event and I look forward to participating again next year” Chief Joe Snyder said.  “We created a little in-house competition this year which added some fun as well.  Officer Duke Bunce raised the most the first three years, so members worked extra hard to raise the most money for this years event.”    Officer Bunce came in second this year raising $1,255.
