Veteran's Haircut Fund

The Cranberry Elks continues to collect funds to support haircuts at the Butler Veterans Hospital.

Most of the veterans have no income and accumulate coupon books for these types of services. The hospital did have a barber that charged $10 per cut, however, the barber has since retired and the hospital had tried to replace the barber with no success. A local hairdresser heard of the problem and volunteered to come in and provide haircuts along with two additional hairdressers. The hairdressers provide haircuts for between 30 to 35 veterans every 5 to 6 weeks. Our point person at the hospital has no way to pay for this service, so she had asked us if we could possibly do something to assist. We would like to provide a $50 gift card for each of the hairdressers for this service to our veterans.

Members wishing to donate to this project may place their monetary donation in the box located under the information screen behind the bar.
