El Paso ISD Lunch Ladies Donate Hair to Charity

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 – Children With Hair Loss.

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.

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.

Children With Hair Loss is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that provides human hair replacements at no cost to children and young adults facing medically-related hair loss.

Food services employees organized the event in an effort to give back to the community.
