Fresh Cut Fresh Start Back to School initiative began in 2006. Year to date the back to school event has given just about 1000 free haircuts and thousands of backpacks filled with free school supplies to Kansas City area children. In addition to the school supplies and haircuts given, FCFS has provided 3000+ parents with information on needed resources and partnerships such as housing, spiritual guidance, health resources, utility and bill assistance, parenting information and much more.
Partnering with health alliances, Fresh Cut Fresh Start provides free immunizations for children. Toiletries for those in need and has fed over 4000 people at our event. This event provides thousand of hours to those in need of community services, such as high school and college students needing credit to graduate. Since the FCFS’s beginning, the event has received numerous humanitarian awards and accolades within the community for its positive and recognized impact.
Fresh Cut Fresh Start will continue to build bridges and partnerships with local entrepreneurs, city leaders and business to encourage our youth.
