Back To School Tour
August 19, 2019 @ 10:00 AM - September 16, 2019 @ 5:00 PM
Over the course of two weeks, our first annual Back To School Tour, will beautify and groom students throughout the Chicagoland area! We’re taking our mobile salon trailer on the road! Why, you ask? Because, almost one-third of Illinois residents are considered poor or low income. Sadly, regular grooming has become a luxury, rather than a necessity. Our mission at CHOP CHOP, is to create happy, healthy, beautiful communities one haircut at a time. As a result, we giveback to the communities that need it the most. In 2017, 16.8% of children state-wide, under the age of 18, lived with families who had incomes below the poverty line. Of that, 27.3% live in Chicago.
CHOP CHOP’s Back To School Tour, will help allievate the financial burden of children’s beauty and grooming needs. One thing is for sure, when a child feels and looks good, it positively impacts the way they think, and behave. The goal of our Back To School Tour is to help 300 + kids feel more confident, and ready to take on new challenges. Everyone should be afforded the opportunity to look and feel great, no matter their gender, race, age or socioeconomic status.
There are a few ways to get involved and make an impact:
- Individuals can donate $25 to sponsor a child’s haircut.
- Businesses can participate by selecting a sponsorship level.
- Businesses/brands can become a part of our story by booking an event with CHOP CHOP

- Select “Children” as the community of impact
