KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) — Care Cuts provided hundreds of homeless people with hot showers, food, clothes and free hair cuts on Sunday.
The group is a non-profit organization that focuses on the needs of the homeless population in Knoxville. Founder of the organization, Marti Baker started Car Cuts in 2016 after a friend asked her to collect 500 hats for the homeless. She was able to collect over 800 hats and knew she wanted to do more to make a difference.
Baker is a hairdresser, but cuts hair for the homeless for free.
“None of us get a paycheck and as long as I’m here, nobody will get a paycheck.”, said Baker.
