Jasper County Sheriff's Office Deputy Aaron Groves is raffling off the opportunity to cut his hair - and maybe his beard, too - to raise funds to help defray the medical costs for Creasy, the Marshalltown Police Department's K-9 officer who suffered an embolism in late April.
Groves, who is a bit shaggy after having spent the last three years working as an undercover narcotics officer, will have his hair cut at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 9, at JP's Jagged Edge, 2104 N. 4th Ave. E., in Newton.
Raffle tickets for the chance to cut Grove's hair cost $5 and may be purchased at the Jasper County Sheriff's Office, the Jagged Edge or the Church of the Way, 2300 S. 3rd Ave. E., in Newton.
Groves is also accepting donations to assist with the Marshalltown Police Department's police dog's recovery. Checks may be made out to Groves with "MPD K-9" in the memo and mailed to the Church of the Way.
A news story on Groves' unique fundraiser appeared last week in the Marshalltown newspaper and can be read here.
