UPLAND, Calif.

Our donation will go toward providing housing and other needs to families while their children are receiving treatment in a hospital,” said Arif Taj, owner of the new Sport Clips and locations in Ontario and Glendora. “Sport Clips wants to be a business that supports its local community. I believe we can all be teammates in supporting worthy causes.”
