Spokane salon sending kids back to school in style | Community Spirit
A Spokane salon is helping send kids from McDonald Elementary back to school in style with free haircuts this Friday, August 29.
“It's important to me and the team at dept. Z to give back to our community,” said owner Zoe Boysen. “Everyone should feel fresh and confident after a haircut, and we want to help students from McDonald Elementary feel that way when they return to the classroom next week. The last thing a child needs on the first day of school is a bad hair day.”
The 24 appointment slots filled quickly, but Boysen says she and her stylists will take as many kids as time allows.
“We may not be able to supply all these kids with food and clothing but we can definitely give them a really great haircut,” said senior dept. Z stylist Mateo Balmes. “When you look good you feel good and that's so important for your first day at school. I thought by providing students with a free cut and style, we could get them off to a great start for the new school year.”
Boysen says she hopes dept. Z can continue to offer this service for years to come.
