NC: Hair meant for donations to kids with cancer found in dumpster with donors’ info (updated)

The Gaston Gazette reports that hair donated to support Wigs for Kids, a charity in Ohio supporting kids battling cancer, was tossed out in North Carolina – along with the donors’ personal information:

Some customers who got their hair cut for charity at a Great Clips in Gastonia are upset that their donations and their personal information were thrown out in a dumpster.

The bags of hair also had labels with donors’ names, addresses and phone numbers.

Someone reportedly found them in a dumpster behind the Great Clips hair salon at Franklin Square shopping center.

Update: In response to the incident, Great Clips officials said Wednesday they will donate $5,000 to Wigs for Kids.
