MEDFORD, Ore. — The owners of a local hair salon are pitching in to help kids in need right here in the Rogue Valley.

"The community has really reached out a lot, we have several people on Facebook that saw what we were doing and gave gift certificates for nails, for hair, for food . . . I mean, there's over $2,000 that the community has donated to us," said Tara Short, a hairstylist at Salara.

Donations to the CACJC will also be accepted on May 11. The raffle will also be drawn on that day, and the winners notified.
