The Marcus Harris Foundation Launches Kutz for Kids
New program offers free year-round haircuts to children from underserved families.
About Kutz for Kids
Studies have shown that maintaining a healthy physical appearance is crucial to building positive self-esteem in young children. With strong self-esteem, kids tend to have a more positive outlook on life, form healthier personal relationships, and are more likely to stick with tasks until they succeed. Good self-esteem has also been shown to increase courage and boost confidence in making healthy choices.
For this reason, the Marcus Harris Foundation (MHF) has launched the Kutz for Kids program, through which it provides free year-round haircuts to children from underserved families throughout the Durham, NC, community. Envisioned by Marcus himself, the purpose of the program is to help kids maintain a healthy physical appearance while freeing their families of the costs required for regular grooming needs.
Kutz for Kids is being offered in partnership with Signature Kutz Barbershop, one of the leading barbershops in Durham. Founded and owned by Jeffery Warren, a devoted husband, father, and community leader, Signature Kutz offers a wide variety of affordable, customized haircuts and other personal grooming services, and it prides itself on being an integral part of the East Durham community and beyond.
All Kutz for Kids participants receive free haircuts year-round at Signature Kutz. Program eligibility is based primarily on feedback the MHF receives from its school guidance staff and community partners.
