Getting ready for school… 5 years in advance

In early childhood, physical, cognitive, emotional and social development occur at a rate that far exceeds any other stage of human life.

Great Clips Cut-a-thon

From Saturday, Sept. 17 – Friday, Sept. 23, participating Great Clips franchisees will host the 24th Annual Cut-a-thon, supporting the school re-entry program at Children’s. A portion of the proceeds from each haircut will help kids with cancer or other serious illnesses go back to school with confidence. The school re-entry program helps address the medical and emotional needs of a child returning to school after battling cancer or other serious illnesses. The program helps educate classmates, teachers and parents. Services often include providing resource materials, phone consultations and/or a visit to the school by a child life specialist. Designed for flexibility, the program tailors services to meet the needs of each child and family. Locate the salon nearest to you and call ahead to confirm they’re participating in the Cut-a-Thon. Stylists will also be donating all or a portion of their September tips. Throughout the entire moth, customers can purchase a cardboard backpack for a donation of a $1 or more, and receive a coupon for $2 off their next Great Clips haircut. Customers may also purchase pencils for $1, with all proceeds going to the school re-entry program.
