Placeholder Image

A Cut-a-thon to raise money for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children will be held this Saturday, June 7, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Georgia Career Institute, 900 Flat Shoals Road SE, Conyers.

The school is offering haircuts, polish change, chair massage, eyebrow waxing and many more services for a suggested donation of $5.

In observance of National Missing Children's Day, Georgia Career Institute will join with other cosmetology schools across the country. All of the profits will be donated to NCMEC. Donations are also being taken all week leading up to the event. All donations are tax deductible and forms are available on site for filing purposes.

"Georgia Career Institute is participating in this national cut-a-thon because we believe that volunteerism and community service are important to the success and growth of our students and the well-being of our community," said Donna Elmore from GCI. "GCI has been a force in the beauty and wellness industries for over 35 years and has graduated many of the professional cosmetologists, nail technicians, massage therapists, and aestheticians that serve our community."
