May 28, 2015 — Annual Cut-a-Thon to Benefit The Food Depot

SANTA FE –€” The 13th annual Cut-a-Thon hosted by Rock Paper Scissor Salonspa will benefit The Food Depot.

From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 30, clients may walk-in to the salon for haircuts. Donations for a haircut start at $25 and a non-perishable food item. VIP appointments are available for $50 and a non-perishable food item, by calling the salon to reserve your spot at 505-955-8500. The salon is located at 500 Montezuma Ave., #110, in the Sanbusco Market Center.

Rock Paper Scissor is also raising awareness about hunger in New Mexico, and collecting non-perishable food items to be donated to The Food Depot throughout the month of May.

Rock Paper Scissor Salonspa annually organizes the Cut-a-Thon as a unique way of giving back to the local community. The proceeds are then donated to a different nonprofit. Staff members participating donate their time and their professional hairstylist skills, and€” 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to The Food Depot.

The Food Depot is committed to ending hunger in Northern New Mexico. As the food bank for nine Northern New Mexico counties, The Food Depot provides food to more than 145 nonprofit agencies including emergency food pantries, hot meal programs, homeless shelters, youth programs, senior centers, homes for the mentally disabled and shelters for battered persons. This service enables these agencies to stay focused on their primary missions such as sheltering homeless families, providing hot meals to the homebound and offering life skills development to youth. The food bank distributes an average of 400,000 pounds of food and household products each month, providing more than 335,000 meals to people in need–the most vulnerable of our community–children, seniors, working families and those in ill health.
