CINNAMINSON, NJ — Senator Troy Singleton is making sure that the kids of the 7th Legislative District, including Bordentown and Fieldsboro, look good as they start the school year in September.
The Senator is sponsoring his 7th Free Back to School Haircut event, taking place on Saturday, September 4 at Mogul's Barbershop in Cinnaminson from 8AM to 4PM. The annual event has been taking place since 2015.
Kids ages 12 and under can get free haircuts at Mogul's Barber Shop, located at 1821 Cinnaminson Avenue in Cinnaminson in the Circle Center shopping plaza. The children must have a valid ID from a school in the 7th Legislative District, which includes Bordentown Township, Bordentown City and Fieldsboro, as well as Beverly, Burlington City, Burlington Township, Cinnaminson, Delanco, Delran, Edgewater Park, Florence, Moorestown, Mount Laurel, Palmyra, Riverside, Riverton and Willingboro.
The haircuts are free, but tips are not included.
Even though the 2020-21 school year looked very different due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Senator still made sure that the annual haircut event continued on last year.
Free haircuts are not the only way that Singleton is making sure that kids are prepared for the upcoming school year. He, along with the Burlington County Commissioners, are partnering up to collect new school supplies and backpacks for Burlington County kids in need before the start of the 2021-2022 school year.
Items sought include backpacks, calculators, binders, paper, folders, notebooks, composition books, pencils, glue sticks, rulers and protractors, pencil sharpeners, pencil cases, colored pencils, crayons, highlighters, markers, erasers, small hand sanitizer, lunch boxes, scissors and index cards.
Supplies are being collected through Friday, August 20, and can be dropped off at all Burlington County Library branches, including the Bordentown Branch, located at 18 East Union Street in Bordentown City.
