"The Veterans of Foreign Wars 'Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship' provides service members and veterans with the financial assistance they need to complete their educational goals without incurring excessive student loan debt. It's just another way for us to say 'thank you' to those who fought for our freedoms."

Ohio Veterans of Foreign Wars District 8 Commander Jim Tornincasa and Department of Ohio Senior Vice Commander Robert Giannone recently presented the Help A Hero plaques to the Sport Clips Haircuts in Fairlawn, and in Macedonia.

The managers and assistant managers were surprised and thankful for the recognition given to their Sport Clips stores.

Through the generosity of the Sport Clips stores and their patrons, many veterans can be assisted through the Veterans of Foreign Wars "Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship."

District 8 encompasses four counties in Ohio: Mahoning, Portage, Summit, and Trumbull.

Any veterans interested in receiving more information can contact a local VFW Post, or District 8 Commander Tornincasa.
