Dear Friends:

We are excited to share the news that Heads Up Barber and Beauty was one of five recipients of a 2018 Spark Award at the March 15 Education Summit. We were recognized by the Guilford Education Alliance for our nonprofit organization, Heads Up For Our Youth, which provides outreach activities such as big-brother-barbers that has brought boys from several schools to our shop for programs, haircuts, and lunch at Mario’s. Our programs for youth are geared to impart both information such as financial literacy as well as motivational mentoring by professionals in various fields such as law enforcement, athletics, and business.

One of our most successful programs is our annual Back to School Rally at the Coliseum Field House. This is a collaboration with sponsors and vendors to offer students activities from basketball to robotics moderated by HUFOY Board member Kerry Charles. Students and parents register to attend FREE, get information from donors and sponsors who support our local schools, and leave with a positive attitude toward education.

The Back to School Rally 2018 is especially important because it will focus on the youth from east Greensboro who have been affected by or even displaced from their schools due to the recent tornado. We want these young people to know that we celebrate their determination in the face of adversity and that we wish them great success in the 2018-2019 school year.

We have enjoyed important support from Staples and Sprint business leaders. Other recent collaborations have included UNCG as well as the Greensboro SWARM. We are holding a Drop IN – Meet UP at our store on Friday June 8th from 7:30 to 8:30 to meet our neighbors and thank our donors.
Won’t you join us in making this Back to School Rally an event to highlight the Shoppes at Wendover? Attached is a donor and sponsor form which explains the opportunities available.

Thank you for sharing our passion for supporting youth in our community,
