Interfaith Assistance Ministry to Hold Haircut Clinic on Aug. 24
Thanks to the giving hearts of local barbers and hair stylists, Interfaith Assistance Ministry is hosting its 2nd Annual Free Back-to-School Haircut Clinic for Henderson County students who receive free or reduced lunches.
IAM’s haircut clinic on Saturday, Aug. 24, is open to students ages 4 to 18 and will take place in the back parking lot outside of the food pantry and clothing closet from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
The haircut event is part of IAM’s annual back-to-school supply and school clothes drive, said Elizabeth Willson Moss, IAM’s executive director. In 2018, IAM provided 607 children with backpacks filled with school supplies needed for elementary, middle and high schools. Students who attend this year’s haircut event are also eligible to receive a backpack filled with school supplies, a new school outfit and new shoes and socks, after their parent or guardian completes a short interview with an IAM volunteer. The number of students IAM assists with school supplies continues to increase each year. In 2017, IAM assisted 503 children; in 2018 the number grew to 612 children, and the number is already large for 2019……..
