Great opportunity! Now through Veterans Day, November 11, you can â€œHelp A Heroâ€ 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 Americaâ€™s service members and their families. The VFWâ€™s â€œSport Clips Help A Hero Scholarshipâ€ 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 recipientsâ€™ 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 â€œThe Biggest Haircut Day of the Yearâ€ 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.
