GRAND ISLAND, Neb., This month the Hall County Sheriff's Department is ditching its razors to take part in No Shave November for the first time.
There are about 19 deputies and administration workers participating. The twenty dollars they pay is all combined and used to help support a family in need of food and Christmas gifts this holiday.
Giving back by growing a big bushy beard is giving deputies something to talk about.
"We give each other some grief. 'Oh yours is looking good today' or 'It makes you look older.' There's a lot of heckling that goes on behind the scenes but that's all part of the fun," said Deputy Marc Vieth with the Hall County Sheriff's Department.
Female workers are also involved in No Shave November. Deputies get to paint their nails with a colored polish, which is typically not allowed and office staff can wear jeans an extra day of the week.
