Back to SchooL: Free School Haircuts, Supplies and Immunizations Guide

Photo by Samantha Sophia on Unsplash

With the economy on the downturn slightly, some families may be feeling the pinch and purchasing school supplies, getting immunizations and paying for haircuts and style could be a bit much for the budget.

Luckily, a lot of barber shops, religious, community and civic groups have organized events where they help parents out.

We’re already deep into back-to-school season and several of these have passed but I managed to dig up a few more in my area, DC, Maryland and Virginia and a few others. Do a Facebook, Google Events or Eventbrite search for one near you.

Here are the ones I found. Good luck!
