HopeFest Phoenix, a one-day free healthcare and social services event, was the largest of its kind in Maricopa County. More than 10,000 people attended the event hosted by CityServe Arizona, many of whom sought clothes and haircuts.
Great Clips stylists and general managers joined Business Services Specialist Kathryn Hill, Education Specialist Dawnele Hernandez and franchisee Suzanne Vogrin at the event, held April 20 at Chase Field in Phoenix.
“It’s just one of those things that people just don’t put at the top of their priority list,” Kathryn said of haircuts. “If they have to be buying food, they’re not buying haircuts, so we do whatever we can do to help out.”
Hill was one of 75 volunteers from Great Clips locations across the valley. The stylists delivered about 400 haircuts in the first 90 minutes of the event and a total of 1,002 for the day! Congratulations to those salon team members who spread “great” by helping others in their community.
