S. Georgians give Locks of Love

August 28, 2004

Albany- Mack Inc. hair salon hosted it's first hair donation drive Saturday.

Nearly 20 brave South Georgians agreed to have their hair cut and donated to Locks of Love, an organization that makes hair pieces for child cancer patients.

11 year old Shelby Edwards decided to donate her hair after her mother was diagnosed with cancer last week.

"I think they would be very happy to have some hair to actually play with, and to put it up in pony tails and braids," she says.

Hair has to be at least 10 inches long to donate to Locks of Love. Six to ten ponytails are need to make each hairpiece.
