Elko Federal Credit Union’s first annual Cuts for Kids is a huge success

ELKO, NV (October 6, 2022) — Elko Federal Credit Union (EFCU) partnered with Elko’s Mix 96.7, BIG Country 103.9, and KOOL 94.5 FM to launch a new annual event Cuts for Kids! This amazing event provided FREE haircuts to kids Pre-K- 8th grade in our community.  In its inaugural year the event provided almost 300 haircuts for children as they prepared for going back to school.   We could not have done this without seven amazing local salons and barbershops including: Carry On With Style Salon & Spa, Sand and Sagebrush Salon and Spa, Downtown Barbershop, Blazing Scissors, The Babe Cave, Elko JCPenney Salon, and TNT Hair and Nail Salon.

“When a community comes together, we can accomplish anything,” said Todd Sorenson, CEO of EFCU. “With Cuts for Kids, EFCU was able to partner with so many great businesses and people to make a difference.  We can’t thank them enough.  ‘Look good, feel good’, right! And we wanted to provide that opportunity to these kids.  We are already planning ways to make this event bigger and better next year.”
