FRANKLIN COUNTY - Sheriff Bill Overton has announced that his office will be participating in a Beards for Charity campaign for 2018 to benifit the Franklin County American Heart Association.
Male deputies are allowed to grow and maintain a neat beard for a donation of $100. Female deputies can donate $50 and not wear a neck tie when in uniform.
"For the past several years, our deputies donate to this charity and we are able to give back to the community," Overton said. "They [the deputies] enjoy this time of year and we have a lot of fun with it."
