MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - A big crowd showed up Sunday as Hair Queen Beauty Supply and School Uniforms gave away one hundred and five school uniforms as well as a number of cellphones and free haircuts. It was a fun atmosphere with food and happy people. Mayor Percy bland was there helping with the event as well.
“A week or two ago, the owner of Hair Queen came up with an idea for me and I said it sounds like a good idea, let’s make it happen, we had a big crowd out here today,” said Mayor Percy Bland.
There was plenty of back to school excitement and Hair Queen even gave away a hover board as well. Back to school time can present a financial challenge to a family and especially if there are multiple children to buy for. Hair Queen in partnership with Mayor Percy Bland were doing their part to help with the challenges Sunday.
“The owner gave away some cellphones, he is about to give away a Hover Board and it’s all about promoting small business, a small business owner trying to make it happen. He has been here a year and his business has done well and he is giving back to the community,” said Mayor Percy Bland.
