Giving Back – Barbco’s Head Shaving Fundraiser Supports Childhood Cancer

THE SECOND Annual St. Baldrick’s “Head Shaving” Fundraiser at Barbco, Inc. was a resounding success! Barbco, a manufacturer of capital equipment for the trenchless excavation, horizontal directional drilling, and underground manufacturing industries located in Canton, Ohio, converted their assembly bay into the St. Baldrick Barbershop.

The event, called “Bald is Badass at Barbco,” raises funds for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to help fight Childhood Cancer. The Foundation is a volunteer and donor driven charity committed to finding cures for childhood cancer. The inaugural event, held in 2019, included 34 employees who “braved the shave” to raise $6,199. Unfortunately, the fundraiser was cancelled in 2020 due to Covid 19 safety considerations. This year, a team of 37 men raised another $5,306.

Joining Barbco in this fundraiser were the following corporate sponsors: U.S. Shoring & Equipment Company; Trenchless Rental Solutions; SACS Consulting & Investigative Services, Inc.; Midwest Mole; National Tube Supply; Kraft Fluid Systems; Great Work Employment; MECO; Shale Directories; Ohio CAT; Industrial Tube & Supply; Brent Scarbrough & Company; Wolff Brothers Supply; Akron Bearing; and The University Steel Company.
