MEDINA – The Medina Police Department’s Police Benevolent Association has used donations collected from “No Shave November” to purchase Thanksgiving meals for some local families.

Members of the Police Department were allowed to grow facial hair during “No Shave November” and collect donations to be given to a good cause.

For the second year in a row, the PBA chose to purchase Thanksgiving dinners for local families. Faith Bible Baptist Church helped to select recipients. The meals were purchased and delivered by MPD police officers to Pastor Damey to be distributed to the selected families for the upcoming holiday.
