CLAREMORE, Oklahoma - Claremore police officers put down the razors for November and it paid off big for some Claremore students.

Officers paid $25 a week for not shaving with hopes of raising enough money to buy gifts for the 400 students at Claremont Elementary.

As of this Monday, they've raised $8,500 dollars and say more donations are coming in. 

Officer James Sutton was selected as best beard and Officer Mark Isaac was chosen as having the worst beard.
