Homewood officers present $23K check to Cancer Support Center

Homewood police officers visited their neighbors across the street Friday to present Cancer Support Center with a check representing a donation of more than $23,000. Thirty-five officers collected donations over the last 30 days as part of a No Shave November fundraiser.

Homewood police quadruple beard-based fundraising goal

Homewood Police Department officers have raised more than $25,000 for Cancer Support Center while growing beards during a No Shave November fundraiser. 

For the fundraiser, police officers could “buy in” for a $50 donation, giving them the privilege of growing a beard and asking them to raise money for Cancer Support Center. Since Homewood police officers are normally not allowed to wear beards at work—though they can have mustaches—the fundraiser’s theme gave them extra incentive.

Underachievers unite to support the arts and Cancer Support Center

Runners tend to dress in shorts and light shirts to help with comfort and performance. Angela Brozowski came to the Homewood Business Association's first 0.3K "run" on Saturday dressed as a unicorn. "It makes me fast and glittery," she said. "I can run on rainbows, soar over everybody." It was that kind of race.
