Walgreens donating $50,000 to Pantene Beautiful Lengths Fund
CINCINNATI -- Walgreens is donating $50,000 to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Fund to help celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the program.
Ten years ago, Pantene created the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program, which strives to create free, real-hair wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment. With the help of charitable men, women and children, the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program has created more than 46,000 wigs to-date. Most recently, the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Fund was created for those who want to support the program, but are unable to donate their hair.
“We’re so thankful that so many people have supported the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program for 10 years, and are grateful to Walgreens for their gracious donation to help create these wigs. Women have a very special relationship with their hair—it plays a huge role in defining who they are as individuals,” says Jodi Allen, VP of P&G Hair Care & Color for North America Pantene. “This program has inspired so many to make selfless donations over the years, and it’s because of them, that women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments are able to feel more like themselves every day.”
Since its creation in 2006, Pantene Beautiful Lengths has provided the funds to create more than 46,000 free, real-hair wigs that are distributed through select American Cancer Society wig banks across the country.
The Pantene Beautiful Lengths Fund works with the nonprofit The Greater Cincinnati Foundation, which accepts monetary donations, allowing anyone to support the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program.
