Wigs for Kids

Fifth grade student, Ava C., has donated a total of 32 inches of her beautiful hair since the age of four. In November, Ava donated her hair for the fourth time to the Wigs for Kids Foundation, a nonprofit organization that has been helping children who suffer from hair loss since 1981. The Wigs for Kids organization does not want children to worry about hair loss or their appearance during a medical crisis, and we value Ava's support of their mission. We are so proud of your endless generosity Ava, and you continue to make us proud!
