No-Shave badges donate to child advocacy groupDecember 5, 2017
By BILL POWELL
JASPER — Deputies and jailers with the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department who just got reacquainted with their razors have closed out “No Shave November” by making a holiday donation.
Officers paid to put away their razors for the month to benefit the Southwestern Indiana Child Advocacy Center Coalition and increase awareness about the organization. They were joined by Dubois Middle School staff, the Dubois County Prosecutor’s Office and a local business that stepped up to assist.
This year’s funds raised by officers were supplemented by a donation of $500 from American Family Insurance, Kim Woodward Agency, of Jasper, according to sheriff’s department Sgt. Stuart Wilson.
”A total of $964.72 was raised and all officers involved have returned to normal shaving,” Wilson said today.
Wilson and Woodward presented a check today to SWICACC Director Tammy Lampert.
SWICACC provides safe reporting locations for victims of crime and their families using community-based, multi-disciplinary teams that provide support, promote justice and help prevent violence, according to the sheriff’s department.
Officers from the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department work hand in hand with SWICACC staff as they investigate incidents of child abuse within Dubois County.
