Sport Clips Haircuts, VFW To Return As Sponsor For The NASCAR Nationwide Series Event At Darlington Raceway

DARLINGTON, S.C., March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Longtime partners, Sport Clips Haircuts and the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States (VFW), proudly announce the return of the VFW Sport Clips Help a Hero 200 NASCAR Nationwide Series event to Darlington Raceway on Friday, May 10, 2013. It is the second consecutive year the two organizations have partnered to sponsor the Nationwide Series event at Darlington.


Sport Clips and the VFW will continue to use their NASCAR partnership to raise awareness about the struggles many military families are facing and the VFW's mission to support active-duty military, veterans and their families.

As the "Official Haircutter" of the VFW, Sport Clips has donated almost $2 million to the organization's Operation Uplink free call days program through its annual "Help a Hero" campaign.  Since the first contribution of more than $80,000 was made in 2007, Sport Clips' donations have increased annually. The company's most recent donation of a record-breaking $500,000 was presented to the VFW at the national headquarters on December 10, 2012.

To raise funds, Sport Clips locations nationwide collect donations at check-out during October and November and donate $1 from every hair care service on Veterans Day, November 11 – what the company calls "The Biggest Haircut Day of the Year." "We look forward to this year's Help A Hero campaign, and expanding our support of the VFW and its work to serve those who so honorably serve our country," said Sport Clips CEO and Founder Gordon Logan.

Founded in 1899, the VFW is America's largest major combat veterans' organization.  The VFW offers several assistance programs to lessen the burden on active-duty military, veterans and their families; offers counsel and assistance to military veterans to navigate VA entitlement and disability claims; and actively lobbies Congress and the administration on issues that impact the lives of our nation's veterans.
