Pennsylvania Unions Provide Free Back-to-School Haircuts for Children

August 27, 2013

Last Saturday, the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO, the United Way and other organizations teamed up for the eighth annual "Back-to-School Free Haircut Day" at the Pfeiffer-Burleigh School playground in Erie County. Nearly 800 children attended, according to Ron Oliver, AFL-CIO's community services liaison for the area.  Nearly all of the volunteers and funds to run the event were provided by the AFL-CIO and its affiliates. Children were given free haircuts, a free backpack and free food. Games and activities also were held to make the event even more fun for the children and families who participated.
