Sport Clips is Proud to Support the american red cross

Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs a blood transfusion. Volunteer donors are the only source of blood and platelets for those in need of transfusions. Sport Clips and the American Red Cross began their partnership in 2009 in the Carolinas by offering donors a coupon for a free haircut.  By encouraging people who are in good health to donate, our goal is to help to ensure hospital patients have the blood and platelets they need to make a full recovery. Blood is needed to help treat a variety of patients including accident victims and individuals undergoing surgery and cancer treatment.

Our partnership has expanded each year and in 2014 our Saving Lives Never Looked So Good! campaign was launched nationally in support of blood and platelet collections through the month of September - historically, a time of year when the national blood inventory system experiences a decrease in blood and platelet donations.

Currently, the national blood inventory is critically low and it’s vital that donors of all blood types to donate blood to replenish the national inventory.

During the month of September, anyone who donates blood through the American Red Cross will receive a free haircut coupon via email to be redeemed at participating Sport Clips Haircuts locations around the country. In 2017, through this monthlong promotion, more than 400,000 red cell units and more than 77,000 platelet units were collected. Help us help the Red Cross by donating this month, and every chance you’re able to ensure a complete blood supply for those who need it.

Our commitment to the American Red Cross continues annually, and Sport Clips team members and clients understand the need for blood and platelets never goes away and is often drastically increased when disaster strikes.
