News

WASHINGTON (NBC NEWS) — On a Sunday afternoon in Tacoma, Washington there’s a new face you may see hard at work.

That would be Tre’vonne Wilkins, a local barber who a couple months ago began giving haircuts to the homeless for free.

Every Sunday he comes to the corner. He sets up a chair, his clippers, music, and some refreshments and waits.

Raised in Tacoma, Wilkins understands the struggle those experiencing homelessness have gone through.
