Paul Mitchell cosmetology schools across America will be holding remembrance events Sept. 11 in honor of the lives lost during the 2001 terrorist attacks.
Each year, the 110-plus schools host a variety of events, including fundraisers for local police, firefighters, their widows and orphans, and even for rescue dogs. Some schools offer free services for police, firefighters, military, and first responders.
On a national level, Paul Mitchell Schools have also partnered with the Gary Sinise Foundation since 2012 to support and thank our nation’s most severely wounded warriors while supporting active duty service members, veterans, first responders, and the children and families of fallen soldiers. To date, through their annual FUNraising campaign, Paul Mitchell Schools have donated $685,000 to support the services provided by the Gary Sinise Foundation, which include building custom-designed smart homes for individuals like U.S. Army Master Sergeant Cedric King, who became a double amputee while serving in Afghanistan.
