Cops cut hair for a good cause

“This is a fun and interactive way for the community to come together and support men’s health,” Mukilteo Police Chief Cheol Kang said in a statement. “I encourage everyone to come and enjoy free food, coffee, donuts, or just stop by to make a donation.”
The event will take place 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov. 21 at Nic’s Barbershop, 4704 Pointes Drive, Suite 105, Mukilteo.
