Great opportunity! Now through Veterans Day, November 11, you can “Help A Hero” take the next step toward a civilian career through education when you get a haircut at one of the more than 1,700 Sport Clips Haircuts locations across the U.S.
The VFW and Sport Clips established the “Help A Hero” scholarship program in 2014, but have worked together for more than a decade to support America’s service members and their families. The VFW’s “Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship” program provides up to $5,000 of assistance per semester to qualified service members who are in need of financial assistance to pursue an education at post-secondary institutions, including trade schools.
To date, Sport Clips, clients, team members and product partners have raised more than $4.9 million for the program, resulting in more than 1,115 scholarships being awarded.While our scholarship recipients’ career aspirations vary, these men and women share a common desire to make a difference, and succeed for themselves, their families and their country.
Donations to the “Help A Hero” campaign will be collected by Sport Clips stylists and other team members in stores and at local fundraising events. Sport Clips will also hold “The Biggest Haircut Day of the Year” on Veterans Day, November 11, when the company donates a dollar for every haircare service to the scholarship program, and many participating stores will also offer free haircuts to service members and veterans with valid military identification.
