On August 22rd, 2022, United Way of Venango County, in partnership with local salons, held their fourth Back to School – Hair Affair. During this event, 154 school-age children were provided with free haircuts and school supplies.
This year the event was held at individual salons throughout Venango County. The participating salons included Clark’s Clippers, Designing Concepts, and Razors Edge. During the event, 9 stylists donated their time and skills to provide Venango County students with haircuts to help prepare them for the upcoming school year.
The backpacks and school supplies were generously donated by Bill Baker. Water bottles were donated by Gardinier-Warren Funeral Home and Youth Alternatives provided their services by checking children for head lice before their scheduled appointment.
