Unsung Hero: Carbondale Police Tackle No Shave November
CARBONDALE -- The Carbondale Police Department is using facial hair to support one of their own. "No Shave November" is a way for the department to raise money for a coworker battling breast cancer.
"When it hits one person, it hits us all kind of hard," said Carbondale Police Officer Rebecca Mooney.
"We sometimes spend more time here than we do with our own families at home," explained Sgt. Amber Ronketto.
"You just want to go up to them and rub their cheeks and yell, 'Yes! Let it grow!'" said Penny.
Even the SIU Police are getting in on the "No Shave November" event.
