Get a Haircut and Check Tires on Penta’s Community Service Day | Community

PERRYSBURG — The Penta Career Center is hosting a community service day for the public on April 11 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at its campus, 9301 Buck Road.

Community Service Day is in honor of Penta’s designation as a Purple Star School and in recognition of Month of the Military Child.

During the Community Service Day, the following activities will take place for the public:

• Cut-A-Thon in Cosmetology will include simple haircuts, styles and basic manicures with a minimum donation of $5. Proceeds from the Cut-A-Thon benefit the Wood County Fraternal Order of Police.

• Tire checks and basic car washes in automotive technology. Stations will be set up near the Penta Greenhouse and it will be a drive-thru format. Donations are accepted.

Both of the above services will be offered free of charge to veterans and active service members during the event.

• Appropriate retirement of the American flag in the firefighter program. Residents can drop off their old, worn American flags at Penta’s main entrance for proper removal by students and fire personnel.

• Clothing drive sponsored by the Inventory & Warehouse Operations program. Only clean, wearable adult clothing and footwear will be accepted. No underwear accepted. Donated clothing will be used to stock Penta’s on-campus closet for students with clothing needs. In addition, some clothing will be donated to Vietnam Veterans of America.
