JKHA and RKYHS Donate at Hair Drive

Thirty one JKHA and RKYHS students took part in a hair donation drive today. All of the participants donated a minimum of eight inches of their hair to Zichron Menachem, the first organization of its kind in Israel providing assistance and support to children with cancer and their entire families.  The donated hair will be used to make beautiful custom wigs and give them to children free of charge. Over 300 inches of hair were donated! These individuals performed one of the greatest forms of chesed, giving a part of themselves to someone else. The drive was organized and run by the RKYHS student-led Hair Drive Committee, who worked tirelessly to make sure the event was a success. With a festively decorated room for the haircuts, complete with an “after” photo booth, and gift bags for all participants, the student committee created an inviting, fun atmosphere for the people donating to feel comfortable. Several JKHA and RKYHS parents and hairdressers from local salons donated their time and skills to give everyone their cuts. The committee also raised over $300 through a raffle to benefit Zichron Menachem with a number of exciting prizes.
