On June 24th, many girls at Melrose High School are volunteering to cut eight inches or more of their hair to help make wigs for children with cancer. This fundraiser is called “Cuts for a Cause.” Ms. Mochi of Melrose High school opened up this offer to anyone willing to cut their hair or make a money donation. Salon 941 on Main Street on the Melrose/Wakefield line has offered to cut the hair of the candidates. This hair will be used to produce wigs for kids who are going through chemotherapy in the ongoing battle with cancer. I have decided to cut my hair for this fundraiser. I feel as though many kids with cancer deserve hair on their head more than I do. Also, Samantha Barb, a junior at Melrose High School is donating sixteen inches of her hair. This is almost a full shave. Teachers and students are helping contribute to this cause and hopefully at the end of the day on the 24th of June, Melrose High will have made a dramatic impact in providing these kids with not only hair on their head but monetary donations as well.
If you would like to donate hair or money please contact Ms. Mochi at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible! Drop ins are welcome, so come on by Salon 941 on June 24th and join us in making a difference!
