Sport Clips Veteran's Day Haircut Event

Anne Moratto | November 4, 2014 | 1:40 PM

Helping a hero is as easy as getting a haircut on Veterans Day.  On November 11, 2014, Sport Clips Haircuts locations across the country will host the company’s annual Veterans Day haircut event during which $1 per haircut service will support "Help A Hero" scholarships for service members and veterans.

Background:

Since 2007, Sport Clips locations across the country have worked to support U.S. service members and veterans through Help A Hero. 

  • Sport Clips and its clients supported more than 130 Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S.-administered scholarships for service members and veterans this year.
  • This year’s goal is to raise $600,000, which will afford scholarships of up to $5,000 for service members and veterans who are pursuing an education at post-secondary institutions, including trade schools.

Stores nationwide began collecting donations at checkout Monday, October 13, and will continue through Veterans Day, Tuesday, November 11, when they recognize “The Biggest Haircut Day of the Year.” On this day, $1 from every haircut service will go toward VFW-administered scholarships for transitioning military. 

In addition to Help A Hero, Sport Clips offers special franchising options through the International Franchise Association’s (IFA) VetFran Program and is a supporter of Ageless Aviation Dreams and the Aleethia Foundation.  As a former Air Force officer, Sport Clips’ founder and CEO Gordon Logan has a special place in his heart for active-duty military and veterans. He serves on the VFW Foundation Board and as chairman of the IFA’s VetFran Mentor Network.
