ILES student donates hair to charity


Stephanie Jo Altstaetter, the 7-year-old daughter of Philipp and Brandi Altstaetter of Bellefontaine, recently donated 8 inches of her hair to Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths Campaign.

Pantene will use the hair to make wigs for cancer patients.

The Indian Lake Elementary School second-grader has been growing out her auburn locks since the first day of kindergarten to honor of her family members who have lost their lives to cancer and those who have battled it and won.

“She was so excited to donate her red hair,” her mother said. “She hopes that her hair will be one of the first wigs to go, as so many people want red hair."
