U of G Cops to Raise Funds for Tsunami Relief
Members of the University of Guelph Campus Security Police are participating in “Crop a Cop” by having their heads shaved to raise money for Red Cross tsunami relief. The fundraiser is on March 2 starting at 1 p.m. in the University Centre courtyard.
Robin Begin, manager of operations, and officers Jim Armstrong and Bryce Kohlmeier will have their heads shaved by U of G president Alastair Summerlee, Nancy Sullivan, vice-president (finance and administration) and Brenda Whiteside, vice-president (student affairs).
“It will be a little over two months since the disaster, so donations may have dried up a little,” said Armstrong. “We’re trying to keep people contributing.”
Begin, Armstrong and Kohlmeier will visit various campus departments and residences in the weeks leading up to the event to raise pledges. Tax receipts will be issued by the Red Cross for donations of $10 or more.
