Tom Parks, Linn County Sheriff, has agreed to alter his look for a very good cause. Tom has worn a mustache for a very long time (since 1980), as seen in his senior picture (left), early in his career as Sheriff (center), and today (right). In an effort to raise money for Saving Every Victim (SEV), Sheriff Parks has agreed to lose his beloved mustache.
If Linn County raises $500 for SEV, Sheriff Parks’ mustache will be colored pink, but remain intact. If $1000 is raised, Sheriff Parks will shave his mustache, and the letters “SEV” will be shaved into the back of his head. If $1500 are raised, half of Sheriff Parks’ mustache will be shaved, the remaining half will be died pink, and the letters “SEV” will be shaved into the back of his head.
So how can you help Shave the Sheriff? Donation canisters will be placed throughout the county. Or, you can mail a donation to PO Box 102 in Brookfield. If you would like a jar at your business, please let Sheriff Parks know.
