The Allegany County Sheriff’s Office has once again grown beards to support the Allegany County Area Foundation’s Shop with a Cop Christmas Program. For the past eleven years officers have contributed to the program in exchange for the privilege of growing a beard during the fall hunting season and female officers contribute through a 50-50 raffle. This year the Allegany County Sheriff’s Office raised $1,763.00 ($1,520 through the beard for bucks’ program, $80 from the female officers and $163 from the TRIAD program).

Sheriff Whitney stated “This is a great program for our area; it gives underprivileged children a chance for the Merry Christmas, that they might not otherwise have.”

Since the inception of the program in 2012 the members of the sheriff’s office have raised and contributed $11,510.00
