Giving is Drift Salon’s Style

Drift Salon is all about giving back to our area of Matthews/Mint Hill/Charlotte/Indian Trail and this page gives all the information about how much we care about the world. From donating hair to helping plant trees in far off places, Drift Salon is committed to helping as much as we can.

Plant a tree and build a forest with Tea Tree. We proudly support Reforest’Action, an environmental organization that plants trees worldwide, in the areas where they’re needed most. Tea Tree’s Green Takeover has made a commitment to:

  • Plant 500,000 trees by the end of 2016
  • Sequester over 85,000 tons of CO2 during the trees’ lifetime
  • Support rainforest conservation and reforestation projects in Peru and Guatemala
  • Benefit local communities through better health and nutrition, as well as additional revenue
  • Protect soil from depletion and erosion caused by deforestation

Drift Salon is happy to add the Special Olympics to the list of charities that we support.  April and May we will be collecting for them.  Special Olympics transforms lives through the joy of sport, every day, everywhere. We are the world’s largest sports organization for people with intellectual disabilities: with 4.4 million athletes in 170 countries — and millions more volunteers and supporters. We are also a global social movement.

Hair Donation

When you come to Drift Salon to donated your hair we will handle everything for you. Just let the stylist know that you would like to donate your hair and we will cut, package, and mail the donation. Below are the two sites we are currently working with.
