A local gay-owned salon is collecting dry-hair clippings and other items to help mop up the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
We wanted to get the word out to the general public and salons in the Dallas area that we are collecting the following: dry hair clippings, new or used nylons (come on, “girls,” put those torn nylons to good use), wool sweaters, old fur coats, feathers (perhaps those old boas that need to be retired anyway), etc.
Anyone can come to the salon in the Preston Center and drop off their donations and we will make sure it gets to the volunteers on the Gulf Coast who are making the mats for the huge oil spill heading their way.
This could be catastrophic for this marshlands and wildlife all up the coast if we don’t band together and help.
The salon is at 6003 Berkshire Lane.
