May Hinderer holds up the three pony tails that are to be donated to Locks of Love.

Whenever people commented on May Hinderer’s long hair, she told them she was growing the hair to donate it to a girl who needed it.

Hinderer, a fifth-grader at Waterville School, hadn’t cut her hair since she was in second grade. Her mother, Naoko had heard about Locks of Love, an organization that uses donated hair to make hairpieces for financially disadvantaged children who have lost their hair.
