For The Hiz and Herz We Care Fund, This Is Just The Beginning! We are looking forward to this new adventure in helping our surrounding communities and making our local area we call "our home" a better place!
The 'Hiz and Herz We Care Fund Program' is a way for individuals to help Lawrence County and surrounding areas provide high quality early education to young children and adults, ages one through 20, while at the same time providing this care at the lowest cost to families in true need of financial help. The 'Hiz and Herz We Care Fund Program' mission supports the ideal that low-income children particularly need extra educational intervention during these highly formative years. It also supports the fact that most low-income families cannot afford to place their children in early education programs and need additional help in obtaining care so that they can remain employed and out of the welfare system. The program is Hiz and Herz Hair Salon's way of meeting these needs and giving back to those in need. The 'Hiz and Herz We Care Fund' is deeply committed to educating young children so that they enter the public school system ready to learn, thus decreasing the need for additional assistance at the public school system level. We will be working with surrounding businesses and foundations to help on our journey to helping you.

Hygiene, Household Safety, & First Aid supply kit drives
This project allows school students to provide direct support to families with young children, by
collecting key supplies for basic health, safety and hygiene needs that can then be distributed
to families in need. FSS(Family Of Social Services) social workers have told me they often encounter families who cannot afford basic
health, hygiene, and kitchen safety or cleanliness supplies. Providing families with the right
tools for small emergencies can also prevent infected wounds and trips to the emergency room.
Simple items like soap, shampoo, and toothpaste can reduce skin infections, disease
transmission, and oral decay. Children with soap and shampoo at home can go out into the
world feeling clean and cared for.
Any item from the lists below will be helpful.
Shaving cream & Disposable razors
Household safety kit needs (provided with information & guidelines on residential safety)
Corner covers (i.e. for a coffee table)
Fire-extinguishers, and a fire safety guide
