We're a couple of weeks away from the start of school, and one business is helping get kids ready.
Michael Hooks, the owner of Michael's Hair Salon, Monday night, took kids on shopping spree, helping about 30kids get all their clothes and school supplies for the upcoming year.
He's been doing this for four year now to help relieve some economic stress on families in the community.
"Just understanding what life is all about," said Michael. "I'm doing my best to help other people and really help the Erie community."
That help will continue this week. On Friday, there will be a Family Resources Fair at Pfieffer-Burleigh School from 11 AM - 4 PM. And Michael's 8th Annual Free Hair Cut Day will be on Saturday at his salon on East 11th.
