MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) — The chaplain at a Mason City hospital has lost his beard of 32 years because hospital staffers surpassed their food drive goal.

The Mason City Globe Gazette says the Rev. Ken Gehling good-naturedly sacrificed his long, white beard on Monday in the main lobby at Mercy Medical Center-North Iowa.

He’d promised to have the beard shaved if Mercy staffers collected more than 750 pounds of food for the Hawkeye Harvest Food Bank. Their total exceeded 800 pounds.

Gehling jokingly told one of his colleagues not to cry about the beard, saying, “It will come back.”
