Essex police to donate funds from 'No Shave' November to food shelf

ESSEX JCT., Vt. (WCAX) Essex police officers who sported beards on the job for the first time now are clean-shaven and are donating hundreds to Essex Junction's only food shelf Wednesday.

The Essex Police Department has never allowed members to wear beards before, but let officers participate in a "No Shave" November initiative.

Those who participated agreed to make a donation to Aunt Dot's Place.

About $1,700 is now being donated to Aunt Dot's.
