Barber students offer their services for a great cause
CHICAGO, Nov. 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Denmark College, with campuses in both Chicago and Merrillville, Indiana, is running a “Free-Shave November” campaign this month to support cancer research. The school, which grooms future barbers as well as other professionals, is putting its own spin on national No-Shave November by donating $2 per free shave to the V Foundation.
