Community Makes "Locks For Love" Event A Success

Despite the snowy weather, many people turned out Valentine's Day to make the "Locks for Love" community service project a success.

South Laurel High School students, teachers, and even community members have been growing their hair for months just for Wednesday's event. Now that their hair is cut off, wigs will be made for kids who lost their hair fighting illnesses. It's a project organizers say will make a difference in many lives.

"We opened it up to the community to pull in more people and to let more people know of the locks for love program," said Project Coordinator Chantel Gray.

"They may never know the lives that they've touched through what they do for giving a part of themselves to somebody," said Project Advisor Mary King.

Organizers say despite Wednesday's bad weather, they still had a good turnout but if you would still like to donate to "Locks for Love" you can, contact Mary King at South Laurel High School at 606-862-4727.
