VIENNA, Va., Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hair Cuttery, the largest family-owned and operated chain of hair salons in the country, announced today that 67,730 haircuts will be donated to former service men and women through its November Share-A-Haircut program. More than doubling last November's donation tally, the certificates are valued at $21 each for a total campaign value of more than $1.4 million, and will be used to show thanks and gratitude to veterans across the country.
The donated haircut certificates will be distributed to veterans in the communities in which Hair Cuttery operates its nearly 900 salons. In each market, Hair Cuttery teamed up with non-profits and veteran's organizations to provide free haircut certificates to former U.S. Military.
"Veterans Day is our time to recognize and honor the men and women who have served our country," said Dennis Ratner, founder and CEO of Hair Cuttery. "Share-A-Haircut is a simple but meaningful way to say 'thank you' to the thousands of brave, selfless veterans in our communities."
Retired U.S. Army Colonel Carl A. Singer of the Jewish War Veterans of the U.S.A. was touched by this nationwide expression of appreciation: "Although I would assert that 'every day is Veterans Day,' I am most pleased that Hair Cuttery has instituted its Share-A-Haircut program to recognize our veterans. I truly find it heartwarming that American companies are reaching out to our veterans."
Since 1999, the Share-A-Haircut program has donated more than 2.01 million free haircut certificates valued at more than $33 million. Hair Cuttery has an established history of charitable giving, supporting a range of local and national causes, St. Baldrick's Foundation, American Red Cross, American Cancer Society, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, OneOrlando, Girls on the Run and The National Network to End Domestic Violence.
