Students visited the Wilkinson Center on March 8-9 to donate their hair to Children With Hair Loss as part of BYU Y-Serve’s Share Your Hair campaign.

During this drive, the organization was able to collect 75 donations with the help of 71 students donating their hair and volunteers from the local Paul Mitchell School. These donations will be used to make free wigs from real hair for children who need them.

Y-Serve holds the drive once every Fall and Winter Semester, however, donations are accepted at the Y-Serve office year-round. Each student must donate a minimum of 8 inches of hair. More information about the drive can be found on the Y-serve website or by contacting them at .

BYUSA Honor held Mental Health Matters, a week of events dedicated to raising awareness about mental and physical health from March 6-10.

The activities ranged from YFit to meditation and from a scavenger hunt to sharing messages of hope.

The goal of the Mental Health Matters campaign is to “educate students about the realities of mental health, promote emotional wellness, and provide hope by encouraging understanding and providing resources for on and off-campus sources of help.”
