Some­times it pays to be scruffy. For all of the month of Novem­ber, members of the Pottstown Po­lice Of­fi­cers’ As­so­ci­a­tion left the ra­zor on the counter. And it paid off, lit­er­ally. “No-Shave Novem­ber” was a way to raise money so they could help out 37 of Pottstown’s most de­serv­ing chil­dren as part of a Shop With a Cop event.

It was held Satur­day, Dec. 1, at the Pottstown Wal-Mart and the of­fi­cers vol­un­teered on their own time to take the chil­dren shop­ping for the hol­i­days.

“We had a great time shop­ping with ev­ery­one and were happy to help pro­vide some early Christ­mas presents,” the of­fi­cers’ as­so­ci­a­tion members posted on the Pottstown Po­lice Face­book Page.

“A big thank you to the employees of Wal-Mart who helped us with this event. We can’t wait to do it again next year!”
