On Friday, July 31, 2015, from 10am – 2pm, over 40 representatives from Paul Mitchell The School (PMTS), Loving the Least (LTL) and generous volunteers will join Cass Community Social Services (Cass) for the inaugural PMTS4Change event in Detroit.
PMTS4Change invites Detroit’s homeless citizens to Cass’ Activity Center (3745 Cass Ave., Detroit) for a FREE HAIRCUT. Attendees will be given “Street Survival Kits” with toiletries, sunscreen, socks, essential personal items and LTL founder Dustin Berlin’s personal favorite – a pack of mints.
Keeping the atmosphere festive - Detroit born, singer/songwriter Sean Z will perform some of his favorite songs for attendees and volunteers to enjoy.
“I believe everyone deserves to be loved and cared for. I’ve cut hair for people that can’t afford it everywhere I’ve traveled. Each time the act of loving others has created an amazing experience for the both of us” says Berlin. “The survival kits are funded out of my own pocket and from other hairstylists and generous donors who believe in the cause.”
PMTS4Change is asking community members interested in supporting the event to donate fundamental personal items for the survival kits (toiletries, first aid items, lip balm/Vaseline, etc.), refreshments (for lunch), or to simply volunteer to help at the event.
Loving the Least is an organization founded in southern California by social activist and hairstylist Dustin Berlin. Formerly homeless, Dustin established LTL as an outreach program to provide free haircuts to homeless people, assist with fundamental needs and increase awareness about the personal struggles of homelessness within the general public.
