VFW's Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship

This is from the VFW:

As veterans return home, they face numerous obstacles as they transition back into civilian life, including finding a career. In 2013, Sport Clips proudly partnered with the VFW to expand the focus of our national "Help A Hero" fundraising campaign to introduce the VFW's "Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship" program. By providing scholarships for use at post-secondary schools, including trade schools, our goal is to continue our strong support of the military, while making the transition from military ife to the civilian workplace a little easier.

Help us provide the gift of scholarships to our nation's heroes and reach our fundraising goal of $600,000! Donate to Help A Hero at Sport Clips locations nationwide now through Veterans Day, November 11. And, make your haircut count on Veterans Day, when Sport Clips will donate $1 from every hair care service to the program. To donate online, click here

Although our scholarship recipients' career aspirations vary, these men and women all share a common desire to make a difference - this time, as civilians - and succeed for themselves, their families, and their country.
