Donnelly Group launches giveback initiative with fifth Barber & Co location

To celebrate the opening of its fifth Barber & Co. location, Donnelly Group is proud to announce the launch of ‘Cuts for a Cause’ at all Barber & Co. barbershops – a giveback initiative to boost the confidence of men and boys in Vancouver through complimentary barber services.

The Donnelly Group has partnered with Open Door Group, a non-profit organization that assists job-seekers living in the Downtown Eastside prepare for, find and keep work, as well as with Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver. Open Door Group’s clients will receive a free shave and haircut prior to job interviews, and Big and Little Brothers will have access to a bonding experience in the barbershop environment.

“As a local business, we’re committed to supporting our community in whatever way we can,” said Jeff Donnelly, founder and President of Donnelly Group.

“We’ve seen how transformative a fresh cut and shave can be,” said Ian Daburn, one of Barber & Co.’s proprietors. “We want to offer that to guys who just need a boost, whether it’s someone going to a job interview or a Big and Little Brother duo looking to just hang out. Everyone has the right to look and feel good, and we’re proud to be able to play a part in that.”

Cuts for a Cause will launch at all five Barber & Co. locations: Cambie Village, Yaletown, Gastown, the Financial District and the brand new Main Street location.

“Aside from providing a fantastic bonding opportunity for our Bigs and Littles, Cuts for a Cause stands to help our Littles instill a sense of pride in themselves,” said Valerie Lambert, Executive Director of Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver.

Linda Devlin of Open Door Group added, “With some wonderful organizations offering a confidence boost to women in need, it’s great to see an initiative that does the same for men. We’re delighted to be able to offer this service to our clients.”
