SportClips ...

SportClips is headquartered in Georgetown, Texas and was established in 1993 by founder and CEO Gordon Logan. The sports-themed haircutting franchise, which specializes in haircuts for men and boys, is ranked by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the top 20 "Fastest-Growing Franchises," and in the top 10 percent of the "Franchise 500."

Since 2007, SportClips has helped U.S. service members connect with their loved ones through our Help A Hero program, benefitting the Veterans of Foreign Wars’ Operation Uplink™ Free Call Days. Through company and client donations, almost 2 million dollars have been contributed to the program and more than 2 million calls have been made possible - and counting!

SportClips continue to support the Free Call Days for deployed and hospitalized service members, but beginning this year, SportClips' Help A Hero program raised funds to provide scholarships to veterans. The VFW's "Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship" program helps veterans get the education and training they need to begin the next chapter of their lives. Each scholarship will provide up to $5,000 of financial assistance to veterans wishing to further their education during or after military service.

SportClips hosted Aleethia’s Friday Night dinner on October 25, 2013 for 87 injured service members and their families recovering at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

Some scenes from the events of the evening…
