As veterans return home, they face numerous obstacles as they transition back into civilian life, including finding a career. In 2013, Sport Clips proudly partnered with the VFW to expand the focus of our national "Help A Hero" fundraising campaign to introduce the VFW's "Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship" program. By providing scholarships for use at post-secondary schools, including trade schools, our goal is to continue our strong support of the military, while making the transition from military life to the civilian workplace a little easier.
From October 13 through Veterans Day, November 11, 2014, Sport Clips locations nationwide collected donations to help provide the gift of scholarships to our nation's heroes. Through the support of our stores, Clients, and partners, Sport Clips was able to contribute more than $712,000!

Although our scholarship recipients' career aspirations vary, these men and women all share a common desire to make a difference - this time, as civilians - and succeed for themselves, their families, and their country.
