    Need a hair cut? Want to try a new hairstyle? Want to help a charitable group in Bulloch County? On Saturday, you can do all three in one place.
    The Salon at Village Square is holding its Second Annual Cut-A-Thon Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. to benefit A.C.T.S. — Area Christians Together in Service. All proceeds from haircuts at the Salon between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. will be donated to A.C.T.S.
    “A.C.T.S. is a wonderful and caring organization,” said Aimee Lowery, owner of the Salon at Village Square. “We were looking for a group to help. Someone told me about A.C.T.S. I checked them out and I found they help a lot of people in our community.”
    Among other things, A.C.T.S. helps Bulloch residents undergoing financial hardship by paying basic necessity bills such as electricity, water or rent. The group also helps with medications and donating groceries.
    Last year, the Salon held its first cut-a-thon to help raise funds for a local boy who had a rare medical condition.
    “We want to help out when we can,” Lowery said. “We’re in a fortunate position and we can make a little difference.”
    As a bit of an incentive, free donuts will be available until 11:30 a.m. and the Daily Grind will offer a free cup of brewed coffee. Also, the Statesboro Inn is providing lunch at 11:30 a.m.
    The Salon at Village Square is located in Statesboro next to The Daily Grind. For more information, call 764-9701.
