Barbers Donate Time
to Emergency Family Shelter

Barbers Markale and BJ of Lincoln Grove Barber Shop in Greensboro stopped at the YWCA Greensboro to donate their time and skills for the residents residing in the Emergency Family Shelter. Barber Markale has been cutting hair for 26 years; Barber BJ has been cutting hair for the past decade.

Although this was the first time the men visited the shelter, they plan on making regular stops and keeping the heads neat and trim. Markale summed up his barber experiences this way, “I enjoy being a barber because I like the time spent with people. I enjoy the conversations.”

Thank you, gentlemen!
