Â “Valentine’s Day Locks of Loveâ€ is an opportunity for Cape Fear Community College students and people throughout the community to contribute to Locks of Love, a public non-profit organization that provides vacuum fitted hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis.
The event will be held on CFCCâ€™s North Campus, 4500 Blue Clay Road, Castle Hayne, on Monday, February 14, 2011, 10 a.m. â€“ 1 p.m. Â â€œValentineâ€™s Day Locks of Loveâ€ is a partnership between the Wilmington Early College High School and Cape Fear Community Collegeâ€™s Cosmetology Department. Customers will receive a blunt cut and hair shaping FREE OF CHARGE with the donation of their hair. Hair must be at least 10â€ long, clean and dry. It cannot be bleached. It can be dyed or permed, however.
Even those who do not have long hair or a desire to have their hair cut may contribute through either a monetary contribution or the purchase of a Locks of Love Bear by GUND. A computer will be set up at the site of the Locks of Love event for this purpose, or individuals may make their contribution through the Locks of Love website: www.locksoflove.org. Monetary donations to Locks of Love are tax deductible.
Locks of Love, which began operation in 1998, provides high quality hair prosthetics to children, ages 6-21. These hairpieces require between 6-10 ponytails and take approximately 4-6 months to manufacture. The mission of Locks of Love is to restore self-esteem and confidence, enabling these children to face the world and their peers.Â Â
