Santa’s Snippers was created by a Senior Vice President of a national cosmetic company. She had a personal connection to domestic violence and recognized before domestic violence agencies existed women would turn to their hairdressers for advice and help. She created Santa’s Snippers as a way for domestic and sexual violence agencies across the United States to raise funds to support its program participants.  

“Today, our Women’s Resource Center is the only organization participating in this fundraiser. We are happy to continue this tradition for 31 years and hope with community support we can hold it for many more years to come,” said Women’s Resource Center, Executive Director, Peg Ruddy.  

“This event would not be possible without local stylists donating their time and talent, along with the support of the Career Technology Center (CTC). Santa Snippers embodies the spirit of giving during the holiday season,” said WRC association member & event organizer, Colleen Pettinato.
