EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Students and staff at the A.S. Faust Intermediate School in East Rutherford raised $136.73 dollars just by rocking big, furry mustaches.
Youngsters, their teachers and the administration purchased mustaches to wear all day Nov. 30 to support the East Rutherford Police Department’s “No Shave November” campaign.
"Mustache Monday" was organized by the Student Council as part of Spirit Week.
The department had raised $5,445 as of Dec. 14 — surpassing its goal by more than $3,500.
