Hair Donated by MMVS members of Rockland and upstate NY

The MMVS members of Rockland and upstate NY region took up hair donation as the second part of their charitable activity of the year. St.Mary’s Church, Suffern, NY hosted the event. The MMVS members embraced the project enthusiastically and some of them even had postponed trimming their hair so that they could donate! It was heartwarming to realize that these hair pieces may transform and empower some of the young recipients! The donated hair will be used to make hair pieces for children who have lost hair due to various maladies. The women who participated in the event felt truly blessed.

Two organizations were chosen.
1) Children with Hair Loss (CWHL)
2) Wish Granted.

The hair pieces that were more than 8 inches in length were donated to CWHL. There were 23 of them. The hair pieces that were less than 8 inches in length were donated to “Wish Granted”. There were 15 pieces in this group.
