BEAUMONT - Hardin county law enforcement officers are trying out a new look this month to help families in need.
They’re taking part in "no-shave November" and donating money to grow out beards, mustaches and goatees.
"It's something fun and different," said Hardin County Sheriff Deputy Matt Neal.
It's only been two weeks and these men are growing out some impressive beards.
"Anytime you don't have to shave is a good time," said Lumberton police officer Chad Ainsworth.
However, it’s not just fun and games because they are donating money to the Hardin County Angels. It's an organization that will buy clothes and presents for families and children in need.
"It's an awesome thing we do and awesome that the guys are participating," said Hardin County Angels organizer Donna Mcneely.
This year the organization hopes to help over 300 families and 60 children.
"We are here to serve and protect and sometimes it's better for us to do something for people in need," said Neal.
The police officers are donating $40 for growing beards, $30 dollars for a goutee and $20 for a mustache. If you would like to donate contact Hardin County Angels on Facebook.
