Cuttin’ Up Hair Salon Serves Meals on Thanksgiving
By Tasion Kwamilele For the past four years Cuttin’ Up Hair Salon, at 2540 Macdonald Ave. in Richmond, has provided warm smiles and hot meals on Thanksgiving to those who are less fortunate. With holiday spirit and cheer, the salon’s staff and clients will once again provide free meals this year. Owner of Cuttin’ Up Hair Salon Curley Wikkeling-Miller began the tradition in 2006 as a way to show appreciation to the community for supporting her business for the past 19 years. Last year, the staff was able to serve over 200 meals. Wikkeling-Miller can attest to needs of the community and has witnessed the growing numbers of needy each year. Though she knows the problem is far greater than what they can handle, she and her staff do all that they can to show care and concern to the residents during the holiday season.
