Coordinator Rina Neal said they had 125 backpacks to present to participants and more than 130 youth were signed up for a haircut. “We have over eight barbers in there and stylists cutting hair, from Kansas City, Topeka and then Junction City.”
There was a definite need for this event. Neal stated, “There’s a great need. I know there are other events in the community this school year, and we so appreciate all those community organizations that give back. So this just another venture in terms of giving the free haircuts, and there is a great need.”
Neal credited Dr. Crystal Davis, Phyllis Fitzgerald, Angie Reed and the Combat Veterans Motorycle Association who all assisted with the event on Sunday. The Association assisted with providing some of the book bags.
