When support takes your breath away

Our community is magnificent to us. We are honored by the support each and every day. After all, we were built by the community to support the community but that doesn’t mean we take anything for granted. When generosity shines a light on this work, it literally has…taken our breath away.

We want to take a moment and reflect on an awesome event at Language of Hair. This is their 5th year doing a cut-a-thon with proceeds going to a local organization and it will be the 2nd time we have been the grateful recipient.

The stylists donate their haircuts from 10AM-3PM on a Saturday (this year it’s April 21st, 2018). It brings in a much needed boost of funds that go directly to help the children and families we serve. On top of it, they donate 10% of their product sales! All the proceeds from their silent auction/raffle money raised come to us. They collect items we need and get local businesses to donate the proceeds they make on products they are selling that day too (a particularly delicious food truck named The Rambler).

This is truly amazing. We applaud them and invite you to partake in their cut-a-thon and any other cut/color/trim that you may need not on April 21st.

Reservations can be made online here or by calling 218.728.5111

Again, we can’t thank the crew at Language of Hair enough for what they do. It really is each and every one of them. A special thanks to Jenny and Faye. No. No. A HUGE thanks to Jenny for the massive organizing. And another HUGE thanks to Fay, the owner, for encouraging everyone to donate and for giving up your business for a day to the forever faithful crew here at First Witness Child Advocacy Center.
