“Fades and Braids” tour coming to Grace Episcopal Church on Sunday

Beverly Bryant - January 12, 2018 11:10 am

A non-profit organization is traveling the United States to provide free haircuts for at-risk children and veterans.

The group is called Building a Better You — or B.A.B.Y. Inc. From 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 14, B.A.B.Y. will be at Grace Episcopal Church at 13th Street and Grand Avenue.

Building a Better You Vice President Larry Peterson said the “Fades and Braids” tour started in August. The group has visited seven states so far. Peterson and his partner thought of the tour after giving out free haircuts to students at an Oklahoma school.

“You never know what it does to that child when you’re able to help them feel good about themselves,” Peterson said. “When you look good, you feel good.”

Besides offering a free service, Peterson said their ultimate goal is to motivate each kid they encounter.

“When they are in our chair sitting down, we are able to talk to them,” Peterson said.
