PHOENIX (November 29, 2017) – You can help a child in foster care this holiday season just by getting a haircut.
The Department of Child Safety (DCS) has partnered with Great Clips, Inc. on the company’s plans to donate one dollar from every haircut to support Arizona Helping Hands’ Toy Drive.
The partnership will kick off December 2 with an in-salon fundraising event that will take place at all Great Clips locations in Arizona.
But Great Clips’ generosity won’t end with the holidays. That’s because the company is also donating 500 free haircuts a month to children in foster care throughout the year.
“We greatly appreciate Great Clips’ kindness for making this holiday season a little more special for children in foster care and dedicating their resources year round to help Arizona’s most vulnerable children,” said DCS Director Greg McKay.
Great Clips looks to continue working with DCS to help Arizona's most vulnerable children.
“The Phoenix market Great Clips CO-OP is grateful to have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of local children,” said Randy Nelson, a Great Clips Franchisee. “We’re looking forward to supporting children in the foster care and group home system not only with our December 2 event, but growing our relationship with the organization to support these children throughout the year.”
