CRANFORD - Members of the Cranford Police Department, ranging from the rank of Captain to Communications Officer, are participating in Cranford PBA Local 52’s No-Shave November.

According to the release, from November 1st through November 30th, Officers and Civilian employees are putting down their razors in an effort to raise money for those in the fight against cancer. Beginning in 2009, “No-Shave November” is a national, month-long non-profit fundraising event during which participants forgo their normal shaving and grooming routine in an attempt to promote cancer awareness. Typically, participants donate the money they spend on shaving and grooming products, which ultimately benefits such organizations as the American Cancer Society, Prevent Cancer Foundation, Fight Colorectal Cancer, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. To date, No-Shave November has raised millions of dollars for these organizations.

Since 2014, members of the Cranford Police Department, nicknamed The Fuzz, have raised between $5,000 and $10,000 annually for No-Shave November. If interested in donating to the Cranford PBA Local 52’s No-Shave November efforts please follow the link at: or Contact PBA Local 52 at
