Community Forums coming your way!

At a Special Meeting on Saturday, April 15, Norwalk City Council requested that community meetings be scheduled to give residents the opportunity to be heard in their "own backyards," at locations more accessible and less formal than City Hall.  As part of the city's effort to strengthen community connections, these meetings will be offered each quarter to provide an open forum for the people of Norwalk to share concerns, questions and comments.

Hair Drive

All hair donated will be used to make hairpieces for individuals suffering from hair loss due to any medical diagnosis.  Hairstylists will be on-site cutting and styling hair.  Hair should be clean and dry.  For more information, please call 929-5566.

 GUIDELINES FOR ACCEPTABLE DONATIONS:

  • 10 inches measured tip to tip is the minimum length needed for a hairpiece.
  • Hair that is colored or permed is acceptable.
  • Hair cut years ago is usable if it has been stored in a ponytail or braid.
  • Hair that has been bleached (usually this refers to highlighted hair) is not usable.  If unsure, ask your stylist. 
  • We are not able to accept bleached hair due to a chemical reaction that occurs during the manufacturing process.
  • Hair that is shaved off and not in a ponytail or braid is not usable.  If shaving your head, first divide hair into multiple ponytails to cut off.
  • We cannot accept dreadlocks. 
  • Layered hair is acceptable if the longest layer is 10 inches and may be divided into multiple ponytails.
  • Curly hair may be pulled straight to measure the minimum 10 inches.
