In July of 2011, Kevin Banks set out to create an event that would give back to the community while making a positive impact in his life, and the lives of others. Many ideas landed on the table, but one resonated, having come from single parent and limited income families.
Recalling our memories of the back to school season when most every child is happy & excited with all the new clothes, and school supplies, eager to return to school……. That uneasy feeling of not having the designer clothes, or all of the school supplies on the list, much less a good haircut, arose within us again. The question on Kevin’s mind….. How many children have to return to school feeling the same feelings of inadequacy? Was this fair, and who really cared enough to reach out to them at a very crucial point in their lives?
Kevin decided on running a very small event to provide haircuts and school supplies for a handful of children. After making the event public, there was an outpouring of businesses, and volunteers in the community who wanted to get involved and help with the event.
