5% of Sales Serve Our Homeless Shelters in Need

SERVE FIRST is one of our core values.

In fact, we host a Haircuts for the Homeless Event with our partners, Sincerely You Project and Austin Street Center every third Sunday of the month.

Because of the pandemic, we are not able to provide this service, so we are serving in other ways where…

5% of sales on our site will be used to purchase masks and
hand sanitizer for local homeless shelters

We’ve learned from one of our shelter partners, Austin Street Center, that homelessness is a combination of three things happening all at once:

When you look at this way, homelessness can happen to ANY one of us at any point when the wrong combination of events transpires.

While we may not be able to prevent tragedy, we can absolutely help with our love and financial support.
