Sheriff's Office Donates No-Shave November Funds to Local Sparrows

After donating $50 each and growing some serious stubble, employees of the Josephine County Sheriff's Office gave the proceeds to two local Sparrows.

GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Local law enforcement donated both funds and unfettered facial hair growth for the month of November in order to give back to their community. Now the Josephine County Sheriff's Office (JCSO) says that it has raised $2,000 for two adopted Sparrows in their area through their No-Shave November campaign.

JCSO employees who participated not only eschewed a razor for the month, they each donated $50 to the cause — ultimately putting together that $2,000.

The money was then split between two Sparrows. Kaylee Armijo, who was adopted by Hidden Valley High School this year, received one check for $1,000. According to JCSO, Armijo was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in October of 2017. She began receiving chemotherapy at the time and will have to continue with those treatments for a full three years.

Azlan Medina, adopted as a Sparrow by Illinois Valley High School, also received a $1,000 check. JCSO said that Medina's mother discovered during pregnancy that her son would be born with Spina Bifida and would need surgery after birth. Medina also developed Hydrocephalus. He is now 8 years-old and has undergone a number of surgeries for his conditions.

After a similar No-Shave November push, the Jackson County Sheriff's Office donated $2,300 to the local chapter of United Way in support of their "Shatter the Silence" suicide awareness campaign.
