During the month of November, members of the Klamath County Sheriff’s Office participated in No Shave November. In order to participate Sheriff’s Office employees were asked to contribute a minimum of $10.00 towards a cancer research awareness project or a recipient family in need of assistance due to a cancer related illness.
This year members chose Azella Lopez, a six-year-old girl recently diagnosed with Leukemia and Diabetes. Azella will need to regularly travel to Medford and Portland for treatment for the next couple of years. This year No Shave November raised $351.00 with additional contributions from members of $886.00 and a $500.00 donation from Klamath County Peace Officers Association.
On December 22, 2020 Klamath County Sheriff’s Office employees presented $1,737.00 to Azella and her family.
