This coming Monday, Monroe Circle Community Center will be bustling with activities as hundreds of kids will be lined up to get their Free Back To School Hair Cuts, school supplies, and book bags. This will be MC3’s second year hosting this annual event in partnership with South Bend 2nd District Councilman Henry Davis Jr and his organization, “Hair Kutz 4Kids.”
Hair Kutz 4Kids has provided this service to the kids of our community for the last several years. 16 local barbers will volunteer their services for a whole day and approximately 25 or more volunteers from Hair Kutz and the MC3’s Son City Kids program will serve as cooks, host, guides, support, preparing backpacks, set up and clean up crews, etc, etc.
This incredible community effort brings out the whole family. Moms, Dads, Grandmas, Aunties, and siblings. Refreshments are provided but much more, love is given. And as the boys and girls receive their first cut of this school year, they can look forward to a fresh start, prepared, feeling good about themselves, and approaching that first day of school realizing how much their lives matter. I love this quote from Hair Kutz, “Sharp Minds Start with a Sharp Cut.”
Hair Kutz 4Kids 2011 – Monday, August 22nd – 8:00AM to 4:00PM – at Monroe Circle Community Center – 526 Western Ave South Bend In – FREE For all School Age Children Ages 5-17.
