PAWNEE, Ill. (AP) - Some central Illinois children in need have back-to-school haircuts, compliments of some hairdressers.

Jody Hodson cuts hair at the Taylorville Wal-Mart. The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports (https://bit.ly/1onjxso ) that she and several other stylists have teamed up with Pawnee Christian Church and offered free haircuts in the church basement on Saturday.

The idea was started by Pawnee Christian Pastor Aaron Griffith last year. He says he knows that families can struggle to find money for haircuts after dealing with high costs of back to school clothes and supplies and plans to continue the event next year.

Hodson and three other stylists spent four hours Saturday trimming and clipping at the church.

Hodson says she knows money often comes between people “taking care of themselves and making themselves look good.”
