Take A Walk In Our Shoes!

Charlie’s Barber Shop is at it again! Employee Brent Kirkland, who cut back to part time hours after earning his degree, has volunteered to walk the five miles from the shop to the closest McDonald’s wearing the big red shoes to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House in Charleston, SC.

Real men wear red... shoes!

The Ronald McDonald House provides shelter and basic necessities for families during their child’s hospital stay so that parents, siblings, and loved ones can be nearby during treatment without having to pay for gas, plane trips, expensive hotel stays and meals out. The cost of running the House is $50 per room per night, though to keep it affordable during a family’s time of struggle, the suggested donation per night is only $20. Due to the generous nature of this program, those who can’t afford to pay are thankfully never turned away- however, this means that more funds are needed. This vital resource heavily depends on charitable donations from the community, and we’re more than happy to support Brent’s admirable efforts to raise funds and awareness!


We have donated McDonald’s gift cards for him to hand out on his journey in hopes of brightening some lives along the way while spreading the word.  We are also collecting money through Paypal  at and would like to ask you to consider supporting this worthwhile cause. Local residents can drop off donations at Charlie’s Barber Shop. For those who do not wish to make a monetary contribution, please consider sharing the blog link so it reaches more people. Remember, a little bit of help from a lot of people is what really makes the difference.

Good luck, Brent!
