Haircuts for the Homeless
Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start when it comes to helping others in the community, but it’s an idea that holds great value to the team at Servilles, especially if we can use our own skills and knowledge to give back. Naturally, we were absolutely thrilled to be asked to partake in a recent initiative run by Angela Bevan of The People’s Project, which involved giving free haircuts to the homeless community of Auckland charity Lifewise.
Many of Lifewise’s clients are homeless and regularly go without necessities let alone luxuries such as haircuts, so for both them and the ten Servilles stylists who took part, this was a very special event. The sun shone and the coffees flowed at Lifewise’s Merge Cafe on K Rd and by the end of the day we had almost forty very happy customers!
We hope this is the first of many opportunities for our staff to help the homeless.
