KCEN-TV in Temple, Texas Interviews Gordon Logan on How Sport Clips Gives Back to Military Families
Sport Clips Haircuts has always had a strong connection and a need to give back to military families and organizations that support them. Founder and Chairman of the Board Gordon Logan was recently interviewed by NBC affiliate KCEN-TV local news to discuss how Sport Clips continues to give back to military servicemen and women who selflessly put the country’s needs ahead of their own.
As a former service member himself—having served as an Aircraft Commander in the U.S. Air Force from 1969 to 1976—Logan understands and can personally relate to military families’ sacrifices. His experience helped him learn teamwork, responsibility, and see the importance of helping good people in unimaginable situations.
How Sport Clips Supports Active Duty Service Members & Veterans
For the last decade, Logan has been an active board member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Foundation. This organization directs charitable funds to active duty service members and veterans. Additionally, in 2019, Logan was elected to the board of the International Franchise Association (IFA), serving on its Educational Foundation Board.
During his KCEN-TV interview, Logan discussed a simple way the company gives back to active duty service members and veterans each year on Veterans Day by offering free haircuts at participating Sport Clips locations around the country. At the Sport Clips Haircuts in Temple, Texas, this effort was held in conjunction with the USO Fort Hood Yellow Ribbon Telethon, an event that also took place on Veterans Day.
In addition to free haircuts, participating Sport Clips locations donated $1 for every haircut given on Veterans Day to the VFW’s “Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship” program. Sport Clips is the primary funder of the scholarship program and collections donations in-store each fall to support the program. The majority of donations come directly from generous Sport Clips clients and to date, some 1,750 scholarships have been awarded, totaling nearly $8 million.
