On August 3rd and 5th, the Samaritan Community Center and the United Way of NW Arkansas held their annual back to school kid’s blitz to help disadvantaged children in our communities get ready to head back to school fully prepared.  In total over 1,000 kids were helped!

This year Shear Kindness was asked to help coordinate haircuts for the kids and the suport from local stylists and salons was overwhelming.  In total an amazing 230 haircuts was provided!  These women gave of their time and resources to give to their community and for that we are so thankful.
