Sport Clips is Proud to Support Our Veterans
As veterans return home, they face numerous obstacles as they transition back into civilian life, including finding a career. In 2013, Sport Clips proudly partnered with the VFW to expand the focus of our national “Help A Hero” fundraising campaign to introduce the VFW's "Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship" program. By providing scholarships for use at post-secondary schools, including trade schools, our goal is to continue our strong support of the military, while making the transition from military life to the civilian workplace a little easier. To date, Sport Clips has helped provide almost $1.2 Million in scholarships to active-duty service members and veterans.
During Sport Clips’ most recent Help A Hero campaign, which began October 12 and culminated on November 11, Veterans Day, Sport Clips locations nationwide collected donations to help provide the gift of scholarships to our nation's heroes. Through the support of our team members, clients, partners, and others, Sport Clips raised almost $900,000 – the largest donation in program history!

Although our scholarship recipients' career aspirations vary, these men and women all share a common desire to make a difference - this time, as civilians - and succeed for themselves, their families, and their country.
