Students Donate Their Hair for Charity

Babylon Grade School third-grade teacher Lisa Lang, along with three of her current and former students, received haircuts as part of an initiative to help women and children suffering from long-term medical hair loss.
Students had the option of donating to Pantene, whose "Beautiful Lengths" program works to provide real-hair wigs for women suffering from cancer, or to Locks of Love, a non-profit organization that offers hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children who have alopecia areata.
"I'm very proud of the students, as they gave generously to those in need," Lang said. "I would also like to thank the staff at Babylon's Cactus Salon Express for helping with this great cause by providing their services completely free of charge."
