Sport Clips is Proud to Support Our Veterans

Since 2013, Sport Clips has been the primary supporter of the VFW’s Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship program, which provides scholarships for service members and veterans for use at post-secondary schools and trade schools. To date, we have awarded more than 1,400 scholarships totaling $6.5 million.

Our scholarship recipients come from every part of the United States, represent every branch of service and are earning a variety of degrees including engineering, computer science, business, accounting, health care and many more.

From October 14 through November 11, Veterans Day, Sport Clips loations around the country will be collecting funds in-store and 100% of donations will be given to the VFW to ensure we can continue to support the educational goals of our service members and veterans. Be sure to visit a Sport Clips over the next month, get the MVP and donate to this worthy cause. Be sure to drop in on Monday, November 11, Veterans Day, when participating locations will donate $1 from every haircut service as well as provide free haircuts for veterans.
