On Sunday, August 10, 2014, 100 Black Men of Greater Lafayette will host "Stuff A Backpack" in conjunction with the 12th Annual "Kuts for Kids," hosted by the Upsilon Rho Chapter of Omega Psi Phi fraternity. The event will take place at Blue Cliff College Lafayette Campus, located at 120 James Comeaux Rd, from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
The project's mission is to give back to the community by providing free haircuts and schools supplies to boys & girls ages 5 -14. The "Kuts for Kids" event started in 2003 to help families in need get their kids prepared for school with free haircuts and it now has grown into a school supply giveaway with the 100 Black Men of Greater Lafayette partnership. Last year was a record breaking year, servicing 350 boys and girls, and giving 500 backpacks. We also welcome and encourage local barbers and stylist to participate by completing this mission.
Other partners include: Blue Cliff College, Glenn Armentor Law Corporation, Acadinana Cares, Louisiana Army National Guard, Lafayette Fire & Police, New York Life, Alon Monge' Inc. Catering. Event goers will not only enjoy free haircuts, but also face painting, free food, free blood pressure monitoring and chair massage.
