Great Clips launches Back-to-School fundraising campaign
$400,000 Expected to be Donated to Schools in U.S. and Canada
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (July 24, 2019) — School supplies and funding are critical to the development of a child’s education and Great Clips, Inc. is dedicated to helping kids and teachers start the school year off successfully. Today, the world’s largest salon brand launched its annual Back-to-School fundraising campaign. For each download of the free Great Clips Online Check-In app that occurs from August 1 through September 8, Great Clips will donate $1 to select schools across the United States and Canada.
Great Clips’ goal is to donate $400,000 to deserving schools across approximately 140 markets that can be used for supplies, enrichment programming or other critical needs of the school. Great Clips will donate a minimum of $20,000 to one school in each of the following markets: Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Denver, New York/New Jersey, Los Angeles, Seattle and Vancouver.
Through its partnership with Monster Jam®, Great Clips will also bring leading Monster Jam drivers, including Great Clips Mohawk Warrior® driver Bryce Kenny, to select schools to hand-deliver supplies to students and participate in check presentation celebrations.
“We found in a survey last year that 75% of parents and teachers believe their local community needs to do more to support students in need during the back-to-school season. We’re excited to be part of meeting that need,” said Lisa Hake, Vice President of Marketing and Communications at Great Clips, Inc. “Great Clips is committed to giving back and supporting the local communities where we operate, and these donations will help ensure a great start to the school year.”
The Great Clips Online Check-In app has been downloaded more than 10 million times. The app is designed to help users save time with innovative features spanning Online Check-In, Siri Shortcuts and haircut reminders.
