CARBONDALE FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE TO DONATE MONEY TO BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CARBONDALE – The Carbondale Police Officer’s Association Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 192 and the Carbondale Police Chief’s Office are excited to present a $1,000 check to the Boys and Girls Club of Carbondale, thanks to a special fundraiser.

In November, employees at the Carbondale Police Department took part in “No Shave November.” To participate, employees donated $50. This allowed them to grow facial hair which is typically regulated by the police department’s policy. Employees who did not wish to participate also donated money to the cause.

Every year, the police department raises money throughout “No Shave November” to donate to either a local organization or family in need.

The check presentation will be held at the Boys and Girls Club (250 N. Springer Street) on Tuesday, June 13 at 10 a.m. Members of the media are invited to attend.

If you have questions or would like more information, contact Carbondale Public Relations Officer Amy Fox at (618) 559-1939 or afox@explorecarbondale.com.
