2014 Hair-a-Thon was a SUCCESS!

First Chance Foundation partnered once again with the Rainbow Room (Child Protective Services Emergency Resource Center) to provide 175 bags of hygiene products to children in the local foster care system. These bags were given to the children on August 18th at the Annual Hair-a-Thon, hosted by the Aveda Institute.

While Aveda helped these children feel special with a haircut and style for the 2014-15 school year, we provided an age appropriate bag to get them started with needed supplies. Also, each child had the opportunity to get in a raffle to have a chance to win donated items such as toys, flat irons, beauty products and restaurant gift certificates. These raffle prizes were given to the children throughout the day.

Are you interested in helping us make this happen again next year. Or just interested in sponsoring a child we help in the future with other needs. If so, this is where you can start. To sponsor an individual child we are asking for a $25 minimum donation. Whether you sponsor ten children or a single child, we would love to have you help us reach our goal for next year of $6,000.00. With your help, we will provide 240 children with a full hygiene bags!
