Robbinsville Police Department Set to Embark
on 2nd Annual “No-Shave November” For Cancer Research
ROBBINSVILLE, NJ – (October 23, 2018) - Police Officers in Robbinsville Township are required to be clean-shaven at all times, save for a well-groomed mustache.
But this November a number of officers, with the blessing of Mayor Dave Fried and Chief Chris Nitti, are tossing aside their razors for “No-Shave November” – an initiative aimed at raising funds for cancer research. To participate in “No-Shave November” from Nov. 1-30, participating officers will make a $100 donation to grow a full beard, and a $50 donation to grow a goatee. Female officers will make a $50 donation to paint their fingernails or wear ribbons, headbands or barrettes.

All proceeds will be donated to the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in the names of the late Robbinsville Township Recreation Director Joe Barker and Paula Kivet, the mother of RTPD Det. Sgt. Scott Kivet. Last year's participation and donations amounted to $3,000 directed to MSK for research.
To make a charitable donation, make a check payable to "PBA #344" and mail to: P.O. Box 10099, Trenton, NJ 08650. In the memo section, please mark the check: "Sloan Kettering/No Shave November."
