Patsy’s Barber Shop Offering Free Back-to-School Haircuts for Kids

A local labor union and barbershop are teaming up to get kids back to school haircuts for free.

Kids are the VIP guests at Patsy’s Barbershop in Albany.

“It’s really all about love and love is the answer and we’re trying to spread some generosity in these hard times,” said William Yager, owner of Patsy’s Barbershop.

Yager, better known as “Trag,” has owned Patsy’s since 2006. He’s just the third owner of the shop since it opened in 1930. He says he feels a responsibility to give back.
