Cut-a-Thon to benefit Grant student council food drive

November 7th, 2009    Author: Staff Report    Filed Under: Community

Every year the Grant Career Center Student Advisory Council sponsors a Food Drive to provide food baskets and holiday essentials to families in need at the Career Center. Each class works to provide a happy holiday for families and to make sure that all members of the Grant family have an enjoyable holiday season.

Graduates of the cosmetology program remember fondly food drives in their past and have asked if they can share their talents with the community and help raise needed funds to support the Food Drive. Therefore, the Cosmetology class and licensed graduates of the programs will be sponsoring a Cut-a-thon, Thursday, Nov. 12, at the Career Center Salon, located on State Route 125 in Bethel.

Grant Career Center cosmetology junior Melanie Jenkins spreads the word about the Cosmetology Cut-a-Thon to salon clients.
Open to the public, the Cut-a-thon will run from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. and will be on a first-come-first-served basis.

Licensed graduates and cosmetology students will be providing haircuts to people of all ages in exchange for a donation of a minimum of 10 cans to the Food Drive Fund or a cash donation of $4. Students will also be accepting donations of nonperishable food items throughout the campaign.

Help yourself to a new holiday haircut and help the students to provide a wonderful holiday to families in need, all in one easy stop.
