Volunteers hand out school supplies at a back-to-school event Friday at Carew Cuts in Kingsport. Help Our Potential Evolve (H.O.P.E.) partnered with Carew Cuts for the event at the barbershop. Boys aged kindergarten through high school received free haircuts, while elementary and middle school boys and girls received free backpacks and other school supplies. The Sullivan County Health Department, CASA and Greater Commission Church also participated in the event. At right, Carew Cuts owner J.R. Carew Jackson gives Brett Rogers his back-to-school haircut.
