Fayette County Deputies Raise 1,000 Dollars For Make A Wish Foundation

FAYETTE COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – Fayette County Deputies facial hair grows as they raise money during ‘No-Shave November.’

Things got really hairy for the Fayette County Sheriffs Department this month. In this case, that’s not a bad thing as officers have been permitted to put down the razors and grow their facial hair to raise money for all for a great cause.  Deputies raised 1,000 dollars, and that money was presented to the Make-A-Wish foundation, deputies are hoping this can become a tradition.

“It’s for a good reason, and that is all it’s about us as police officers and deputy sheriff’s it’s finding easy to give back to the community and this is one good way to give back,” said Sheriff Mike Fridley

“We will use that money to grant a wish for a child here in Fayette County. We are working on a wish here now so that money will be used for expenses and pay for that wish right here in Fayette County,” said Jo Beth Smith, Regional Director

Make-A-Wish helps nearly 70 people throughout the year here in West Virginia.
