Help stamp out hunger and save on a haircut

Update: Gift cards were awarded to the winners of â??musical basketball chairs,â?? played at halftime. This event raised a total of over 6,000 pounds of food for the food bank.


Cost Cutters is teaming up with Truman University to support the local food bank.

A free haircut coupon will be given for any cash donation at the Truman basketball games this Saturday. Halftime prizes will also be awarded.

The cash donations will be used to purchase items for the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri; that will then be distributed to multiple pantry sites across the Heartland.

"The money is going to be raised for the food bankâ?? said Susan Dublin, Food Bank Regional Coordinator. â??For every contribution you will get a gift certificate for a Cost Cutters hair cut and we have half time shows lined up.â??

The bulldogs will be taking on the Drury Panthers, and a large turnout is expected. The womenâ??s game starts at 1pm on Saturday, February 1st, followed by the menâ??s game at 3pm. Come out to the Pershing Arena and support the teams and your local food bank.
