Ties That Bind: Community and Hair Connection
2011 proved to be a year filled with community stewardship and goodwill, with the help of one local salon. The Hair Connection has made giving back a way of doing everyday business.

Last spring, Hair Connection teamed up with YouthGo, a local non-profit organization encouraging kids to be a proactive part of the community. In return for their extra project work, they received free haircuts and styles of their choice this past August, courtesy of the Hair Connection staff.
In June of 2011, Hair Connection staffers decided to thank combat veterans with their Military Makeover campaign. Complete transformations included hair style, color, and make-up – helping one local mom, Rebekah Van de Hey, shake off the desert dust of her active 2010 duties.
When the Neenah Animal Shelter needed to raise money for abandoned, lost, and unwanted pets, the Hair Connection donated hair care items for the Furry Friends raffle. Held at Neenah’s Riverside Park, the Furry Friends event included a 2K walk, raffle, and micro-chipping clinic.
It didn’t surprise anyone when The Hair Connection got involved with Making Strides Against Breast Cancer again this year. They’ve made a habit of encouraging families with pink hair extensions and clip-ins for participants of the three-mile walk out of Memorial Park, also in Neenah.
Participating in community events keeps businesses in touch with the needs of their neighborhoods. When it comes to sponsorship, a small staff can still make a big difference. The caring hands at the Hair Connection prove it.
