This Veterans Day, Hair Cuttery, the largest family-owned and operated chain of hair salons in the country, is giving back to former service men and women through its Share-a-Haircut program.
For every adult haircut purchased on Tuesday, November 11, 2014, a free haircut certificate will be donated back to a veteran in communities local to Hair Cuttery’s almost 900 locations. In each market, Hair Cuttery will partner with local veteran’s organizations to reach those in need through the donation of haircut certificates.
“In honor of our 40th Anniversary this year, we expanded Share-a-Haircut beyond the original back to school program to benefit the homeless, victims of domestic violence and veterans,” Said Dennis Ratner, Founder and CEO of Hair Cuttery. “The men and women who have served our country have given so much, it is our honor to be able to give back to them. We hope in some small way we are able to help those who have sacrificed so much for our country.”
The Share-a-Haircut program is currently in its 15th year and has reached more than 900,000 children, and more than 100,000 homeless and victims of domestic abuse through haircut certificate donations, valued at more than $13.5 million. This November, Hair Cuttery hopes to reach 25,000 veterans.
Hair Cuttery has an established history of charitable giving, supporting a range of local and national causes, including St. Baldrick’s Foundation, American Red Cross, The National Network to End Domestic Violence, American Cancer
Society, Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Girls on the Run.
