GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.– Just in time for the back to school season, your children will be able to get free beauty services at River City Scholars Charter Academy.

Local barbers and manicurists will be in the River City Scholars Charter Academy gymnasium on August 18 from 6p.m. to 8p.m. offering free haircuts and manicures for community kids.

Located on 944 Evergreen St., SE, this is River City’s second year in a row that this event has been held, and this year, they are even more prepared with more barbers on hand to help. In attendance will be The Barber Shop, A Gentle Men’s Gallery, Head N Sole and Blushing Goddess.

Last year there were long lines and thousands of dollars of donated services, and an even bigger turn out is expected for this year.

In addition to the beauty services, families will be able to enjoy free food, participate in games and raffles as well as meet their teachers and school staff.

Not only was this event designed to get kids excited about their upcoming school year, but for parents to ask questions, receive tours and receive assistant in filling out paperwork.
