Patrick Adams is hoping people will part with a few dollars if he's willing to part with his hair. Adams, a courier at FedEx in Hagerstown, is raising money for St. Mark's Lutheran Food Bank. So far, he's raised $800. He said he really had no expectations for what started out as a small project to raise awareness of hunger and help a local food bank. "My co-workers have really stepped up to the plate and I am proud of them for that," Adams wrote in an e-mail. Adams, who lives in Chambersburg, Pa., said he grew up poor and remembers going to bed hungry.
