Uncle Marty’s provides free packing and free shipping via First Class Mail for hair donations being sent to Locks of Love, Pantene Beautiful Lengths, and similar charities. Simply bring your freshly shorn ponytail (in a baggie, please) to Uncle Marty’s. We’ll even print the donation form for you and give you a receipt!
We’ve had our Locks of Love program in place since day one, and have sent hundreds of hair donations over the years, making our hearts smile. In fact, Marty has operated the same program at shipping stores that he ran years before opening Uncle Marty’s in 2011. However, in 2012 and 2013, Marty went through intense chemotherapy to fight a very aggressive form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, so this program has even more meaning to us now.
Marty’s now a very grateful cancer survivor and a co-captain of Cancer Crushers, an American Cancer Society Relay for Life team. We often have other fundraising efforts for Cancer Crushers going on in the store, so stop in soon to see what’s brewing!
Every summer, Cancer Crushers hosts a ginormous yard sale, with all proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. Uncle Marty’s is very happy to act as a collection point all year long for items being donated for the sale–clothing, household goods, books, bags, banjos, etc. So as you move, purge, and clean the clutter, please keep Cancer Crushers in mind.
Thank you so very, very much for your kind and generous support!
