LACKAWANNA, N.Y. (WIVB) – It was a celebration of all things “hairy” in the city of Lackawanna Monday.
Through the “No Shave November” fundraiser, city employees raised almost $5,000 for Upstate New York Transplant — or UNYTS.
Police officers, Department of Public Works and other city employees paid $25 to not use their razors for the entire month. The campaign is in memory of Danny Wilson, A Lackawanna Police Officer who died while getting a liver transplant in January.
Lieutenant William Kukoleca, Jr. said, “He was always smiling. He’s one of those guys you always wanted to be around. Always having a good time, and he was very well liked by everyone that knew him, and by everyone that worked here.”
The City Departments say they plan to participate in the fundraiser again next November.
