Hair Cutting for the Homeless on Thanksgiving
It started off with Tammy, Wylie, Mario, Jose and Crystal cutting hair for the homeless in the pouring rain. Rain like this is rare in San Diego, but it’s even rarer to see such a dedicated team of people cutting the homeless’ hair!
Although we had two canopies overhead, the shelter barely kept the rain out. Still the homeless hair cutting team cut 30 homeless people’s hair. (Be sure to check out the list in the San Diego homeless hair cuts sheet in the photos below.)
