LOVES PARK (WREX) – “No-Shave November,” is well behind us. But on Monday, one department gave thousands of dollars it raised from the event to a particular group.
The Loves Park Police Department is giving a check to the Mercyhealth Development Foundation. The department raised nearly $4,000, which will support the rooftop healing garden located at the new Javon Bea Hospital and Physician Clinic – Riverside.
“We definitely support our local hospitals,” said Dep. Chief Mike McCammond of the Loves Park Police Department. “I mean it’s a very valuable relationship for us. Our officers do end up there on a regular basis unfortunately due to having crime victims and things end up there.”
McCammond says officers chose to donate money towards the healing garden after finding out more information about it.
