Free haircuts for kids in St. Paul neighborhood

Free haircuts for some St. Paul students

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- A St. Paul barber is giving to kids in need.

Milan Dennie, the owner of King Milan's Barbershop off University Avenue in St. Paul is offering free back-to-school haircuts.

"I am here to get a haircut for both my boys Elijah and Tekari for back to school," said Epps.

Free school supplies, haircuts and lunch for kids getting ready for the first day of school.

"Everyone's been loving it, things have been rolling pretty smooth," said Dennie.

"It is so awesome he's giving back haircuts for little kids, backpacks and there's food and it's really nice because there are a lot of people with multiple kids and getting haircuts can be expensive nowadays," said Dennie.

Takanda Epps says she's saving $40 thanks to Dennie. "Growing up as a child, it was challenging for my mom as a single parent to get us off to school, and as I got older and started in my profession. I always wanted to give back to the children. This is my way of doing it," he said.

"A lot of times kids think people don't care about them and it's nice to have someone show them they care," said Epps.

It's a busy day but for Dennie and his crew they say it's all for a good cause.

"I do it to influence the community to come together to look out for our children," said Dennie.

Dennie will offer free haircuts twice a year, one for school aged children and another for all ages.  He will offer free haircuts to kids until 8 p.m. Monday.
