Stylists from Shear Delight also were donating their time and talents.

The event, which continues today from 12:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., was organized by the Leo Gonzales Jr. in the memory of his late uncle, Johnny Gonzales, known for years of community service, including organizing giveaways of school supplies and holiday dinners for the needy.

Eleven people had shown up moments after the 11 a.m. start Saturday, and Gonzales said that he hoped to serve 100 people or more during the weekend, providing free lunches as well. “One thing I am impressed about is that the community really came together for this,” Gonzales said. “Everybody I talked to, every stylist, was willing to come together for this.”

Harvest Ministries, normally closed during the weekend, is supporting the effort by opening its facilities for two days and providing some staff and volunteers to assist.
