Sponsors being sought for No Shave November

Published 7:00 am Saturday, October 14, 2017

Local men will let their facial hair grow once again in November as part of the annual “Poplarville No-Shave November” fundraiser.

This fundraiser has been held since 2012 and has since collected over $12,752 for about 300 local children in need.

This annual event involves men foregoing shaving for a month in order to raise funds that will be used to purchase Christmas gifts for local children who are less fortunate.
