Executive Producer Grows Hair for Charity

Star Super Market, also known as ‘the heartbeat of Five Points’, recently celebrated 80 years of serving groceries and the community. The owner, who has a heart for giving back, donated his hair for a good cause. He first donated his hair in college, and then regrew it so he could donate again. Recently, he reached the required length and had 12 inches cut off by a hairdresser. The cut hair was then put into ponytails and placed in a bag to be sent to “Wigs for Kids” offices, where it will be used to make wigs for children in need.

The gesture of donating hair is just one example of the deep community involvement that Star Super Market has maintained over its 80 years in business. The market has been a beloved fixture in the Five Points neighborhood, offering a wide selection of groceries and a friendly atmosphere that keeps customers coming back generation after generation. The recent celebration of 80 years was a testament to the market’s enduring commitment to serving the community in every way possible.

As part of the celebration, the Weather Authority visited the Arc of the Shoals to highlight the importance of giving back to the community. The Arc of the Shoals is a non-profit organization that serves individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, providing them with opportunities for growth and support. The visit aimed to raise awareness of the Arc’s work and encourage donations to support their mission.

For those interested in giving back by donating their hair, there are some requirements to keep in mind. Wigs for Kids, the organization that will receive the hair donations, requires that the hair be a minimum of 12 inches in length. Additionally, the hair must not be permed, color treated, or highlighted. Once the hair is cut, it should be placed into ponytails and sealed in a ziploc bag before being sent to the organization.

The celebration of Star Super Market’s 80 years was a testament to the enduring impact that a small business can have on its community. From groceries to community involvement, the market has truly been ‘the heartbeat of Five Points’ for eight decades, and it shows no signs of slowing down in its dedication to serving the neighborhood.
