Marshall University students have collected a total of more than 78 feet of hair to be donated to Locks of Love.
WMUL-FM and the Huntington School of Beauty Culture held a Hair for the Herd event Thursday at Marshall's Memorial Student Center Plaza in Huntington. The station says the event drew 22 different donors. One donated bag contained nearly 11 feet of hair.
The nonprofit group Locks of Love makes wigs for financially disadvantaged people under age 21 suffering from long-term hair loss.
