Local barber and founder of The Backpack Barber, a nonprofit that seeks to help improve the lives of the homeless, Greg Young was recently interviewed by The South Florida Sun Sentinel.

Young has an amazing story of overcoming his own troubles and then using his success to give back to those in need.

The Backpack Barber initiative, recently launched by Young, provides aid, hygiene supplies and free haircuts to the Fort Lauderdale homeless community.

On National Hair Day, October 1, 2018, Young and other local barbers will gather in front of the Broward Public Library to provide free haircuts and backpacks filled with snacks and hygiene supplies to the homeless.
