(CENTER FOR CAREER & TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION -- March 5, 2019) — More than 40 lunch ladies from cafeterias spanning all of the El Paso Independent School District gathered here on a recent Saturday to so something that didn’t involve a kitchen.
The EPISD Food and Nutrition Services employees came together to have their long, beautiful hair chopped off in the name of charity.
The 40 women – including some students – donated nearly 620 inches of hair to Children With Hair Loss, a nonprofit organization that provides free wigs to children with medical conditions affecting hair growth.
Food services employees organized the event in an effort to give back to the community.
The hair was properly cut and treated by cosmetology students at the Center for Career & Technology Education, who also gave all participants a complimentary manicure to show their gratitude.
