Vienna, VA (Vocus) July 17, 2009
Hair Cuttery, the largest family-owned and operated chain of hair salons in the country, will launch its tenth annual Share A Haircut program to provide children in need a fresh haircut to start the new school year.
“We believe a new haircut on the first day of school can help a child feel more confident and can make a big difference to start the next academic year,” said Dennis Ratner, Founder and CEO of Hair Cuttery.
From August 1st through 15th, every time a child (aged 18 years old or younger) receives a haircut at any of the nearly 800 Hair Cuttery salons, a free haircut will be provided to a disadvantaged child in the community. Through partnerships with over one hundred local social service agencies and non-profit organizations, Hair Cuttery has donated more than 450,000 haircuts since the program’s inception in 1999.
“We are extremely proud of the Share A Haircut program. It creates the opportunity for children to help other children in the community, and teaches them that a simple deed can make a big difference to someone less fortunate,” said Ratner. “In these troubled economic times, we all need to do whatever we can to help those in need.”
Hair Cuttery has an established legacy of charitable giving. The company supports a number of national and local causes, including: Dress for Success, American Cancer Society, Special Olympics, Buzzing 4 Change, National Kidney Foundation and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Hair Cuttery also supports Locks of Love, a non-profit organization providing hairpieces to children who have lost their hair through illness or genetic conditions, and a range of national and local charitable organizations.
