Salon cuts hair for food bank

They were cutting hair today in West Toledo for a good cause.

The Creative Excellence Salon on Sylvania Avenue held a fundraiser for Nightingales Harvest.

The organization helps cancer patients and their families by providing a food bank, toiletries and other services.

Folks dropping by got a haircut, polish change and even an eyebrow wax.

The owner of the salon wanted to help Nightingales Harvest because her father is now battling cancer.

"It's called 'pay it forward' because you never know when it's going to be you and it feels awesome to be able to do this," said Merinda Marcinkowski.

Non-perishable food items were also being collected for the Nightingales Harvest food bank.
