The Huron Township Department of Public Safety donated over $3,000 to fund school lunches for students in the Huron School District.

The funds came from the department’s no-shave November event, during which police officers donated their own money to charity for the chance to grow a beard, which is normally against department policy.

“These donations will directly impact students in the Huron School District and will pay lunch balances for the remainder of the school year for students in need,” said Superintendent Donovan Rowe. “The Huron food service Director will be contacting the families that will be impacted by this generous donation. Thank you Director Robbins and all of our First Responders.”

The department also recently took several local children on a holiday shopping spree during their annual shop with a hero event.
