The Ludlow Police Department will be participating in the Home Base No-Shave 2019 campaign in support of Home Base, a Red Sox Foundation and the Massachusetts General Hospital Program. The rules are simple: Each participant donates or fundraises $100 to forego facial restrictions during the month of November. But, just in case there are additional questions you are itching to ask, please refer to our FAQs below.
• How can we donate?
1.) Credit Card: You can donate online to the Ludlow Police Department’s fundraising page. Click on,https://because.massgeneral.org/fundraiser/2405301 to find the Ludlow Police Department’s page. Once you click on the page and you’ll see a red “Donate” button. All credit card donations will receive an immediate confirmation email and tax acknowledgment.
2.) You can write a check to Home Base and mail it to:
ATTN: Maureen Wade
125 Nashua Street, Ste. 540
Boston, MA 02114
*Please be sure to include which police department you are supporting. All check
donations will be added to the department’s online fundraising page.
• When are donations due? Can we bring donations to the Shave Off event at Fenway on 12/4?
We’d love to have all donations in before the Shave Off event at Fenway Park on December 4th so that we’re able to announce the total raised and include it on the big check for a photo. You are welcome to bring donations to the event. If you don’t have the funds in-hand, you could always let us know any donations that you are confident we’ll receive so we can add it to the total raised. If donations come in after December 4th, they will still be added to your Department’s page and towards the overall total raised for this year’s campaign.
In 2018, hundreds of first responders and
supporters from across 117 cities and towns
raised more than $276,000 for Home Base
during November. To date, this campaign has
raised over $470,000 to provide critical, lifesaving
care for Veterans and their Families.
