Mayor Taveras, Participating Salons Host Free Back-to-School Haircut Day on Tuesday, August 19

Monday, August 18, 2014

In advance of the first day of school, Mayor Angel Taveras, the City of Providence's Subcommittee on Youth Engagement and the City's generous salon partners will host Providence's first-ever free Back-to-School Haircut Day tomorrow, Tuesday, August 19.


"For many families, paying for supplies, clothes and other items children need when they go back to school can be a challenge," said Mayor Taveras. "I thank the hair salons and barber shops that have agreed to participate in Providence's first-ever Back-to-School Haircut Day for their commitment to helping our students start the school year confident and ready to learn."

All Providence K-12 students are encouraged to bring a school supply donation to any participating salon during the listed time frame in exchange for a free haircut. School supplies will be distributed to students in need.
