Elko Federal Credit Union Provides Free Back-to-School Haircuts for Kids Again

August 2023 – As the laid-back days of summer transition into back-to-school season, many families will struggle with managing the associated costs. Families spend hundreds of dollars on each student yearly, from notebooks and other supplies to clothes and technology. Understanding the burden this places on the community it serves, Elko Federal Credit Union(EFCU) has announced the return of Cuts for Kids, an enthusiastically received community outreach program launched in 2022.
EFCU’s Cuts for Kids provides free haircuts for local students returning to school. EFCU partners with local salons and barbershops to provide professional styling services for pre-k through eighth-grade students. This year’s Cuts for Kids program will invite families to stop by the Elko branch to pick up vouchers during the month of August. With the vouchers, families within the credit union’s service area can secure free haircuts for up to 2 students per family on a first come, first served basis.
Local salons partnering with EFCU currently include Sand + Sagebrush Salon and Spa, TNT Hair & Nail Salon, Carry On With Style Salon & Spa, Downtown Barbershop, Made 2 Fvde, and JCPenney Salon. The salons will provide limited slots for scheduling professional styling services from August 14-26.
“We’re thrilled to once again offer the Cuts for Kids program to our amazing community,” states Todd Sorenson, CEO of EFCU. “This initiative embodies our commitment to supporting local families and our membership by providing free haircuts for students as they embark on a new school year, fostering both confidence and happiness.”
