Our officers might look a little “different” this fall, it’s our new look and it’s for charity.  This October, November and December the Malvern Borough Police Department, the Willistown Township Police Department and the West Goshen Township Police Department will be joining forces by growing beards for charity. Our officers, their officers and our police associations will be contributing funds towards two charitable endeavors near and dear to us. This friendly competition with Willistown and West Goshen is intended to raise money for “Unite for Her” and “Beards for Buc”.beard

Unite for Her is a locally based charity committed to helping women diagnosed with breast cancer navigate their way through treatment by providing complementary therapies designed to promote physical and emotional wellness.

Beards for Buc is a new endeavor undertaken this year. “Buc” or Sergeant Christopher Sambuco from the Caln Township Police Department suddenly and unexpectedly passed away in April of 2018 leaving behind an extended law enforcement family as well as a wife and 4 young children. Chris was a devoted husband, father, friend and public servant. Funds raised will benefit the Sambuco Children Education Fund.

If you’d like to help, we will be accepting donations for both Unite for Her and the Sambuco Children Education Fund at our police station for the next 2 months.

Unite for Her, donations can be made directly at www.uniteforher.org.

Beards for Buc, donations can be made directly to The Sambuco Children’s Educational Fund, P.O. Box 614, Broomall, PA 19008.
