Bishops Barbershop Brings Hope at the Holidays

Bishops Barbershop returns to support Impact NW by providing free haircuts

Bishops Barbershop returns this year to support Impact NW by providing free haircuts to Impact NW clients.

Portland’s hippest barbershop is teaming up with one of its most impactful nonprofits to help neighbors in need this holiday season. To celebrate, Bishops Barbershop will provide free haircuts at Impact NW (10055 E Burnside St, Portland) on Wednesday, Dec. 7th, from 9 am to noon.

“We are so delighted that Bishops is showing the people we care for some added attention this holiday season,” said Jeff Cogen, Impact NW’s Executive Director. “Like us, they were founded right here in Portland and really step up to support their neighbors.”

The Holiday Hope Drive will support more than 3,000 people this year with gifts and coats. Cash donors, through the Drive and through Willamette Week’s Give!Guide, help keep services running strong throughout the year for the more than 36,000 people served each year by Impact NW.

Also supporting the Holiday Hope Drive is Living Room Realty, Nike, Propeller Consulting, and Heffernan Insurance.
