With winter upon us, hundreds of Valley homeless individuals and struggling families enjoyed free haircuts and lunch on December 13, 2015 at St. Vincent de Paul’s downtown Phoenix dining room. Stylists from all over the Valley volunteered their time to cut and style hair for hundreds of homeless adults and children. The Homeless Haircut Marathons have been sponsored by PureTrim.com and held quarterly each year under the direction of Sister Sharon Ashby-Robinson through the Homeless Outreach Programs, Inc.
To the homeless, who do not know where their next meal is coming from, a haircut is a luxury they cannot afford. Not only are haircuts important for good hygiene, they are also essential for those who are looking for permanent housing and employment.
