Salons and barbershops participated in the week-long food drive by collecting donations from customers and neighbors. The shops collecting the most pounds in food donations received professional grade Andis clippers, trimmers and heat styling tools. Headlines Barbershop in Charlotte, NC tipped the scales with 718 lbs. of food and Tame Salon in Los Angeles donated 350 lbs. Donations will be going to Second Harvest Food Bank.

“Both Andis and Jaye Da Barber passionately believe that by serving the needs of a community, you will ultimately change society for the better,” says Harry Szczukowski, national sales manager. “Social responsibility has been a part of the Andis DNA since our founding in 1922, and we encourage all of our associates and business partners to give back and make a difference.”
