      Scissors for Sandy: Cutting hair and giving to hurricane victims

      EUGENE, Ore. - While hurricane victims are still picking up the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy on the east coast, some hairstylists in Eugene are doing what they can to help.


      "Face it" salon on 5th street in Eugene donated all of their haircut proceeds to help victims hit hard by the devestating storm.


      The massive cut-a-thon is referred to as "Scissors for Sandy."


      It is a nationwide fundraiser salons all over the country are doing to raise $100,000 for Hurricane Sandy's victims.


      "Especially this time of year, it's the least we can do," said Katrina Soentpiet, owner of "Face it." "It's something that has affected communities and they've been wiped out. So I want to be able to help build them up again."


      The salon raised $570 in donations through Monday's fundraiser.
