August 19, 2014 - It's almost back to school time for area schools and once again a local business is making sure everyone goes back to school with a new haircut and back pack.

This is the ninth year Michael's Hair Salon is hosting the Back to School Free Haircut Initiative thanks to a big donation today. The kids will also receive a brand new back pack full of supplies.

The UPMC Center for Engagement and Inclusion made the donation of 1,000 backpacks to the back to school program. The backpacks will be handed out this Saturday at the annual Back to School Free Haircut Initiative.
