    Nine elementary students and some staff members make the cut for Locks of Love at Sheffield Intermediate School in Dallas.

    Nine Carrollton-Farmers Branch students donated their hair during a student-organized Locks for Love hair drive dubbed "Making the Cut."

    The students weren't alone, several staff members and parents also cut off at least 12-inches of their hair to be donated to the program.

    Locks of Love takes the donations and turns them into wigs for cancer patients who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy treatments.

    Nine elementary students and some staff members make the cut for Locks of Love at Sheffield Intermediate School in Dallas.

    The hair drive was an idea of one student who participated in the school's Leadership Academy, a program that teaches youngsters about leadership and philanthropy, and was inspired to make a difference in the community.

    "Sheffield Intermediate prides itself on community involvement, service and citizenship. Through the campus' Leadership Academy, students are taught about leadership and are encouraged to be involved in philanthropy," the school said in a news release.
