Do good with a new ‘do! Haircutting marathon at Denny Moe’s Superstar Barbershop in Harlem raises money for non-profits.
For the fourth consecutive year, Harlem barbershop Denny Moe’s has begun its haircutting marathon. Its purpose: to give the newly-styled patrons a health screening. Barbers from across the country, and even as far as Paris, began the 48-hour marathon on Saturday July 14th all in an effort to raise awareness for health issues in the Harlem area.
Just outside the shop, representatives from local health care groups provide free screenings on site. Once a patron is screened, they head inside for their free haircut. Those who choose to pay have the money donated directly to non-profit organizations.
According to Denny Moe, the owner of the barbershop and planner of the event, the ultimate goal is for the program to gain enough momentum that visiting barbers will duplicate the program in their own hometowns. Charity and style wrapped up in one event? We love it!
