JACKSONVILLE, FL -- Kimberly Clarke owns a hair salon in Riverside and said she wants to help kids feel confident going back to school.
Clarke dropped by Good Morning Jacksonville Sunday to demonstrate on Sarah, a student heading back to school Monday. Sarah got 10 inches of hair cut off and a new look for her first day.
She also wanted to donate her hair to Locks of Love, a nonprofit that collects hair to make wigs for children.
Through the United Way and First Coast News "Be a Hero" program, Clarke plans to help parents Sunday, Aug. 23rd by giving any student from K through 12 a haircut for free.
The idea, of course, is to help families pinched in these tough economic times.
