"Our Community, Your Department"

No Shave NovemberNo Shave November!

No Shave November is an annual event involving the growing of beards and mustaches during November to raise awareness of various cancers.

We want to evoke conversations, raise awareness and support cancer prevention, research and education.  Each of us has been impacted by cancer in one way or another; we want to do something that will help make a difference.

The Pendleton Police Department believes in the power of its relationship with the community, and hopes individuals will follow by participating and donating to cancer research throughout the month of November.  This year officers have chosen to donate all monies donated to the Anson Fairbank family and the local chapter of American Cancer Society. 

Family friendly fundraising event - Hamley's Steakhouse Friday, December 1st from 5-8 p.m. where officers turn in to your wait staff!  All tips earned will be donated directly to our cause!
