“We usually do a fundraiser every year that’s called Barber-Q. It’s our annual fundraiser and client appreciation day. Every year we do free haircuts, free food and drinks, live music and we encourage donations and we give those donations to a local charity. But we had to cancel due to everything with COVID-19,” Cregan said.
