Cleaning Up Denver With Haircuts

In an effort to help clean up the city when the Democratic National Convention comes to town, a local salon in Denver has offered free haircuts to the city's homeless.

"The City of Denver has been working to make sure everything is in tip-top shape for all the visitors coming to town for the Democratic National Convention, and now a local salon is helping in that effort."

"It seems to be a first -- don't move the homeless, clean them up. That was the work of one salon and the recipients didn't even seem to care if the Democrats were coming to town. Sly's Salon at 17th and Grant was offering free haircuts to the homeless Monday."

"'To give them haircuts and make them all spiffed up for the Democratic National Convention, because they are part of our community as well,' said Ghandia Gohnson, co-owner of Sly's Salon."
