SOUTHINGTON — The police department is raising money for its No Shave November and Prostate Cancer Awareness Month campaign. All proceeds will go to the Curtis D. Robinson Center for Health Equity at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford.
The campaign will continue until Dec. 11. Wristbands are being sold at the department for $1.
Police are also accepting other donations. Checks can be written to the Saint Francis Foundation and brought to the police department.
“It is the goal of the Southington Police Department to have an active role in this event each year and support from the community is always appreciated.” Sgt. Steve Cifone said in a statement.
The Curtis D. Robinson Center for Health Equity aims to “advance health equity in our communities through engagement, research, education, and advocacy,” according to its website.
