Some members of the Racine County Sheriff’s Office will soon be shaving for the first time in a few months.
Staff participated in the department’s third shaveless fundraising campaign during the first three months of 2021. As long as you donated to benefit the Wisconsin veterans outreach, you were usually allowed to grow a beard that violated the policy.
On Monday, the Sheriff’s Office provided VOW Executive Director Brad Bering with a $ 3,724 check.
“The Racine County Sheriff’s Office proudly employs 54 veterans,” says Sheriff Christopher Schmaling. “I understand the true value, skills and knowledge that military service gives veterans. These veterans proudly serve their country and continue to serve their counties in law enforcement. I cannot express my heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has served a wonderful country. “
“The ongoing support between law enforcement and the veteran community has been nurtured by a mission similar to mutual self-sacrifice,” said VOW Executive Secretary Brad Bering. “One of the selflessness and prioritization of others over ourselves. Today’s donation is to help our brothers in our arms never forget and always rely on the dedication of fellow heroes to do what they can. The gifts given to us not only provide food and shelter for 15 residents, but are even more important to support their financial, physical and emotional well-being. The entire Veterans Outreach team here is immeasurably grateful to everyone who has contributed to this generous gift and wants to continue its strong relationship with the law enforcement agencies. I will. “
