Children with Hairloss
Alvernia community members donated 117 ponytails this week totaling 1,137.5 inches of hair (enough to make 11 wigs)—to the Children with Hairloss organization. Christan Daniels (Schuylkill) gave the longest donation of 20 inches followed by Jen Reimert (registrar) with 18.5 inches. $1,586.48 was also donated to the cause.
Special thanks go out to Shear Style Salon
(Wyomissing) whose stylists cut hair non-stop from 2:30PM-8:30PM on Wednesday. There was never an empty chair! See WFMZ’s live broadcast of the event.
A dozen Alvernia staff and faculty members shaved their heads to raise money for the cause.
In addition, BTI’s Deb Walters gave massages and Sweet Streets donated desserts.
