FLINT — Security Credit Union (SCU) assistant vice president of information technology John Scott recently made a donation that will make a difference in a child’s life. He donated his hair to Locks of Love.
After serving in the military for 22 years and sporting a crew cut, Scott decided to grow his hair out in 2010. Then, when a relative was diagnosed with cancer the following year, Scott had the perfect opportunity to return to a shorter hairstyle. He decided to donate his hair to Locks of Love.
Locks of Love is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children suffering from long-term medical hair loss by providing them with hairpieces. The donations are a step in helping children rebuild their self-esteem and confidence at a difficult time. Recipients come from disadvantaged families across the United States and Canada.
Scott was able to contribute two 10 inch ponytails to the nonprofit as a result of his efforts.
“It’s wonderful that John has made a contribution to Locks of Love,” said Christopher Estes, SCU president. “We’re proud to have employees like John, who not only participate in worksponsored volunteer projects, but also do so independently.”
Scott joined the SCU team in April 2000 and currently resides in Flushing.
Headquartered in Flint, Security Credit Union has been committed to providing secure, convenient and personalized service since 1949.
