All proceeds from No-Shave November will benefit the Margaret Mary Health (MMH) wig program for cancer patients.

(Batesville, Ind.) - City of Batesville employees will participate in No-Shave November, a month-long initiative to grow facial fair to benefit local cancer patients.

The program was launched by the Batesville Police Department who challenged Batesville Fire & Rescue as both Police Chief Stan Holt and Fire Chief Todd Schutte waived their respective department’s policies toward shaving for the month in order to support the fundraising opportunity.

Employees in additional city departments expressed interest in the program which has now been extended city-wide to include Buildings Department, Parks & Recreation, Street Department, Water and Gas, Wastewater and the Mayor’s Office.

All proceeds from No-Shave November will benefit the Margaret Mary Health (MMH) wig program for cancer patients.

Participating employees will donate the money they typically spend on shaving to the MMH program for the month of November. The public is encouraged to support their participating family and friends by donating to the initiative.

“Cancer has likely impacted every family in our community in one form or another and this is one small way for our employees to further make a difference in the lives of people we are honored to serve,” said Mayor Mike Bettice.

Those interested in making a donation to support the City initiative may make a check payable to Margaret Mary Health and deliver it to the Memorial Building, 132 S. Main Street in Batesville.
