Sport Clips is Making Military Holiday Phone Calls Home Possible:
Sport Clips stores across the country will be collecting donations now through November 14 to support the Veterans of Foreign Wars' (VFW) Operation Uplink, a program that offers free call days and calling cards for deployed and hospitalized American soldiers. The effort will include "The Biggest Haircut Day of the Year" on Veterans Day, November 11, when the franchise will donate a dollar for every haircut service given that day in its more than 600 stores. "This is Sport Clips' third year to support Operation Uplink. With the help of our clients, we've provided more than three million minutes of talk time for our military men and women during the holidays," says founder and CEO Gordon Logan, a veteran and lifetime member of the VFW. "The letters of gratitude we receive from military families who were able to speak to their loved ones through Sport Clips' gift encourages us to work harder to provide more talk time each year," says Logan. "What we have done together with our clients has made a major difference and is greatly appreciated by those who have given so much to keep our country free."
