Talking about charities, there’s this expression: “to give back.” We’d like to call it giving within. Our salon owners are independent business people who live and work in communities around the country. Every day they join customers and neighbors to help out within those communities. Across the U.S. and Canada for example, the biggest charity partner of Great Clips salons is Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a group of hospitals treating the majority of kids with serious illness.
Great Needs. Great Deeds.® isn’t a pat on the back. In fact, it’s a big “Thanks” to customers who keep visiting their local salons for the same great experience. Their loyalty helped us contribute nearly $1 million to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and more than $2.5 million through our Charity Golf Classic to Children’s Hospitals and Clinics over the past several years. In fact, Great Clips contributed $700,000 to many causes in the past year alone. Great Needs. Great Deeds® is also a challenge to ourselves, and a call to action for all our salons, partners and friends, to keep remembering what makes us great. And where we are, which is usually right around the corner.
"It’s a big world, and one of the most important benefits of being a successful company is being fortunate enough to contribute on a bigger scale through our corporate offices," said Great Clips CEO Rhoda Olsen. "Great Clips, Inc. is thrilled to count several esteemed organizations among our charity partners and friends." Click here for a list of charities Great Clips supports.
