National Truth and Reconciliation Day
In recognition of Truth and Reconciliation Day, Steveston Barbers and Steveston Tattoo Co. are joining forces on Sept 30th to raise money for All Nations Outreach Society.
All tips made from Steveston Barbers and 50% of the days earnings at STC will be donated.
If you are not getting tattooed or in need of a haircut that day, you can still stop by to say hi and donate what you can. Below, we've also included some great events happening around metro Vancouver for you to check out.
We will also have a limited number of orange long sleeve shirts, with the design above, available on a first come, first serve basis. 100% of the profits will be donated to All Nations Outreach Society as well.
