There’s not much more American than a road trip in a red, white and blue Mustang.
Wounded Warriors Family Support Group, a national group based in Omaha, kicked off its High Five Tour on Friday by visiting seven local Sport Clips hair salons including one in Papillion at 8419 S. 73rd Plaza.
The tour is raising funds to build custom-designed “smart homes” for two wounded warriors and their families.
Ret. Marine Col. John Folsom said he didn’t want to give a set goal for the tour but that the more money they raise the more homes they will be able to build. The tour will travel across 48 states and end in Georgetown, Texas, on July 26.
Wounded Warriors Family Support Group partnered with Sport Clips because Folsom said an ad by Sport Clips and another veterans organization caught his eye. After doing some research, Folsom found that Sport Clips’ founder and CEO is an Air Force veteran and said it has turned into a great partnership.
“We like to get the stylists involved because they make things happen,” Folsom said.
Angie Roberts, owner of Papillion Sports Club and four other locations in the metropolitan area, said she thinks the effort is a great cause and message to give to their clients and others.
