Locks of Love

Patricia Claus, an 8th grader here at LRMS has organized to have Locks of Love at our school. If you have long hair that you are willing to donate, they will take your hair and make it into a wig for children with life-threatening disesases that have made them lose their hair.

You must have at least 10 inches of hair to donate to be cut off. Layered hair is acceptable but the longest layer has to be 10 inches. Bleached hair is not acceptable but colored hair or permed hair is. Talk to your stylist about it, so you can collect your hair after a haircut to donate.

The Locks of Love foundation appreciates your support and willingness to donate. Please help if you can!
