Katie Lushbaugh, 16, of Smithsburg, recently donated two of her braids of hair to the Locks of Love program.

The program uses donated hair to make wigs for children who have lost their hair due to illness.

Katie also made a donation of hair less than two years ago.

She is planning to let her hair grow again in hopes that she can donate a third time.

Katie said she appreciated the ability to help children less fortunate than herself.

She is the daughter of David and Cathy Lushbaugh of Smithsburg, and the granddaughter of Nancy Scott of Waynesboro, Pa.

Katie is a sophomore at Smithsburg High School.
