At the beginning of every school year, we team up with grammar schools as well as high schools within the Essex County Area and we hold annual Back to School drives to aid in efforts that ensure that each child receives adequate school supplies, makeovers, haircuts, teen summits, and workshops to prepare them and motivate them for the new school year.

We understand that sometimes parents in our inner city have more than 2 or 3 children and need assistance in making sure their children are afforded the same treatment as other children.  It gives us great joy to know that people come from near and far to donate and volunteer their time and service, in order to help us make this a reality each year.

 

Year after year, it gives shop owners who are barbers, hairstylists, and students in cosmetology school a chance to give back to their community.  They come from various cities to do free haircuts and makeovers; putting a smile on each family’s faces without asking for anything in return.
