A man named Brennon Jones has made it his mission to help others in need, and he's done that by simply giving hair cuts to homeless people. It's always incredible to hear about people doing something just for the greater good, and it's even more amazing to hear how that inspires others to do the same.
According to Fox 5:
A man named Sean Johnson wanted to help, so he decided to give a fully-renovated, basically new barber shop that will offer services to those in need, to Brennon Jones.
It was given to Brennon free of charge.
Brennon says he was amazed by the offer.
“He said listen, I’ve got a building I want you to come check out. He said do you like this place? I said yeah I like it, he tossed me the key and said it’s yours,” Brennon recalled.
Sean Johnson himself knows about the path from struggle to success, having to rebuild his life.
“When I was in their I went to school learned how to cut hair, my mother paid for my license and I’m not gonna let my mom down,” Johnson said.
From incarceration to successful owner of Taper’s Barbershop, Johnson planned on expanding down Old York Road to another shop he bought and renovated, but meeting Brennon changed that. He’s experienced success and now says he is more focused on community significance.
“It wasn’t about me giving a barbershop, when you look at the homeless and the things that they need, I looked at it as more. I built something and I want to see it keep going and I want to see it do a great thing,” Johnson said.
The new shop will open in November with set days to exclusively serve the homeless. Now, Sean and his commitment to community building have partnered with Brennon who previously had no idea how he would continue the haircuts throughout the winter.
“I just continue to rely on my faith, God brought me this far I know he’s not gonna leave me now,” Brennon said.
