PORTSMOUTH, R.I. — The Portsmouth Police Department will be joining the Home Base, a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Program, First Responder No-Shave November campaign.
Throughout the month of November, the Portsmouth Police Department has committed to forgo shaving in order to raise awareness and funds for Home Base and to break the stigma associated with post-traumatic stress (PTS) and other invisible wounds of war that returning service members and their families face.
In November of 2017, 60 Massachusetts Police Departments and three community partners participated, raising more than $128,000 for veterans and their families. This year, all are invited to participate, with police departments from all New England states and Southwest Florida.
Please consider supporting the department’s efforts by donating to this great and worthy cause.
Officers from the Portsmouth Police Department will be donating $100 each to Home Base to support their mission to heal the invisible wounds for veterans, service members, and their family members. The mission of Home Base, a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Program, is to heal the invisible wounds for veterans, service members and their families through world-class clinical care, wellness, education, and research.
