Barbco Once Again Joins the Fight Against Childhood Cancer
East Canton, Ohio-based Barbco Inc. hosted its second St. Baldrick’s head-shaving fundraiser to benefit the fight against childhood cancer and the event was a resounding success. The event, called “Bald is Badass at Barbco,” happened Oct. 29, 2021, with Barbco converting its assembly bay into a St. Baldrick’s Barbershop.
Barbco hosted its inaugural event in 2019 when 34 of its community-minded employees braved the shave and raised $6,199 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. Unfortunately, Barbco had to stand down in 2020 due to COVID-19 safety considerations.
