Hair Cutterys take part in Easter Seals

Hair Cutterys across Massachusetts, including the salon in Haverhill, are participating in the Easter Seals’ “Make the First Five Count” campaign to support early identification, early intervention and screening services for children.

Customers can donate in any Hair Cuttery salon and Hair Cuttery will match every donation made up to $10,000. Every year, more than a million young children enter school with unidentified developmental delays and disabilities that put them far behind their peers. Easter Seals created Make the First Five Count to engage parents and caregivers around the importance of early identification.
