Girl Scouts Host Ponytail Drive
Recently the Girl Scouts of Southern IL teamed up with Studio RLC and hosted a Ponytail Collection. The ponytails collected were donated to Wigs for Kids. A special thanks to Girl Scout Troop #8653 for welcoming people upon their arrival and for donating. Ten ponytails were cut and donated from our community and 15-20 were dropped off from local salons and the community. Melissa Bertschi, instructor, and the students at Studio RLC shared their location to host the event, and they also washed and styled those who donated their ponytails. Licensed cosmetologists who made the cuts were Christy Barnes and Emily Trentmen.
