Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island Welcomes Generous Donation from Straight Edge Barber Shop

Local business donates 125 pairs of shoes for area youth as part of Day for Kids.

Hilton Head Island, SC, October 23rd, 2017 – The Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island is pleased to announce the recent donation of 125 pairs of donated shoes from Straight Edge Barber Shop.

Owner Steve Kleinhans collected shoes from customers as well as donations to purchase new shoes at his Matthew Drive shop, all to benefit area at-risk youth served by the Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island.

“Kids need a fresh pair of school shoes. I realized it was a problem when I saw a local kid in need, so I decided to do something about it,” said Kleinhans, “and my clients love giving back to area youth.”

This generous donation was received during the Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island’s Day for Kids. Held nationwide every year in the Fall, this special event highlights the critical needs of children, calls on adults to take action in support of America's kids and helps us celebrate the life-changing work being done by our volunteers.

The local Day for Kids event was open to all Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island members, providing them with an enjoyable day of games, bouncy houses, food and fellowship. But more importantly, it invited the community to help us in our mission of providing life-changing opportunities for area youth. It was an invitation that Straight Edge Barber Shop answered with overwhelming generosity.
