HELP A HERO Scholarship Program

What is Help A Hero?

Sports Clips Haircuts, the nation's leading men's and boys' hair care provider, is a major supported of the VFW and is also its "Official Haircutter". Since 2007, Sport Clips locations across the U.S. have helped U.S. service members connect with their loved ones by participating in the company's Help A Hero fundraising campaign, benefitting the Veterans of Foreign Wars' Operation Uplink Free Call Days. Through company and client donations, more than 2 million calls have been made possible - and counting.

Sport Clips continues to support the Free Call Days for deployed and hospitalized service members, but in the fall of 2013, the company expanded Help A Hero to support veterans as they return home through the gift of scholarship! The VFW's "Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship" Program will help service members, like you, get the education and training needed to begin the next chapter of your life.
