Twenty-four women, including Abigail Forman, pictured here, accepted the challenge of cutting their locks. The event helped to raise more than $230.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Program, which is a partnership between Pantene, which makes hair care products, and the American Cancer Society. The donated ponytails will be added to the American Cancer Society’s wig bank, which distributes wigs to cancer patients across the country.

Combined with last years’ event, the UA community has raised more than $420 and given 185 ponytails to the cause!April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and as part of National Volunteer Week (April 12-18), a donation drive for new and gently used clothes is being hosted. Donated clothes will be given to victims who have been seen and treated at area hospitals.

UA Impact Lunch attendees

As part of National Volunteer Week (April 12-18), the Department of Student Life hosted the first UA Impact Lunch on April 14. Sixteen faculty, staff and students took part in the event, with $850 raised to donate to Let’s Grow Akron Inc.

In order to participate, each attendee paid the $25 event donation. All attendees nominated a local nonprofit and three were drawn at random. The group learned about each of the three and then voted on which should receive the event donation. Thanks to the generosity of one attendee, the event donation was matched.

The nonprofit, Let’s Grow Akron Inc., which creates and supports community gardens, was selected to receive the donation.
