Presenting Blood and Platelet Donors at participating blood drives and blood donation centers will receive a coupon for a free haircut in August

The American Red Cross and Sport Clips Haircuts are teaming up during the month of August to show that “Saving Lives Never Looked So Good.” During the month of August, all presenting blood and platelet donors at participating Red Cross blood drives and blood donation centers will receive a coupon* for a free Varsity or Jr. Varsity haircut as a thank you for their lifesaving blood donations.

Whether you need a back-to-school haircut or are just looking for a new look, donating blood could be your ticket to finding your new ‘do.

“We are pleased to have more than 100 Sport Clips locations in the southeastern U.S. partner with the American Red Cross blood donation program in August,” said Matt Lewis, Sport Clips area developer for North Carolina. “As a company, we believe it’s important to ‘step up to the plate’ in support of important causes, like this one.”
