Willimantic, CT - - Eastern's People Helping People (PHP) student club, in collaboration with Pantene Beautiful Lengths, is holding a hair donation event from 2-4 p.m. on April 29 in the Betty R. Tipton Room in the Student Center. All donated hair will be made into wigs for cancer patients. The public is invited.
For those interested in donating, hair must be a minimum of eight inches; free of dyes, bleaches or chemicals; and no more than five percent gray. Hairstylists will be available to style hair after the cut is made.
The goal of PHP is to donate enough ponytails to create 10 wigs. To sign up or for more information, contact PHP at firstname.lastname@example.org; Kim Silcox in the Center for Community Engagement at email@example.com; or Nicole Gaona at firstname.lastname@example.org.
