Before, During, & After

Ms. Stack BEFORE

Ms. Stack DURING - I just donated 10+ inches of my hair to Pantene's Beautiful Lengths campaign. My hair will create free, real-hair wigs for women who've lost their hair due to cancer.
Ms. Stack AFTER - BALD for St. Baldricks Foundation!

Ms. Hirsch BEFORE

Ms. Hirsch DURING - she donated two pony tails of hair to Pantene's Beautiful Lengths campaign.

Ms. Hirsch AFTER - BALD and Beautiful!

Ms. Hirsch and I would like to thank all those students, parents, faculty, staff, and friends who supported us in our St. Baldrick's Foundation effort to raise funds for childhood cancer research. The students at Mepham High School and throughout the Bellmore-Merrick CHSD have shown their generosity, braveness, and compassion. With your support, encouragement, and donations, our district raised over $100,000. Additionally, 65 people shaved their heads at Tuesday night's event and 40 ladies chopped their locks for Pantene's Beautiful Lengths campaign. This has been an amazing community effort and we are so proud to have been a part of it. Stop by the library to get a glimpse of your very BALD library staff!
