Two businesses in Williamston are giving back to the community and those in need. One is offering free sandwiches and the other free haircuts.

Jose's Cuban Sandwiches and Deli opened a couple of weeks before lockdown last year. Owner Jose Miroquesada said he was worried about opening at that time, but was overwhelmed with support from the community.

After seeing a Facebook post from Ken McCoy, on free meals being given to those in need, Miroquesada thought it would be a good idea to give back to those who gave to him. Jose's is selling $7 meal tickets that give a person in need a sandwich and side. If you know someone who is in need, you can purchase a ticket and bring it to them or add it to the other prepaid meals in the window.

You come in and purchase a meal, a prepaid meal, and anybody that's struggling can come in and get that ticket and get a free meal.

Owner of Williamston Barbershop, Jordan Keener, is giving back to the community as well by offering free haircuts to those in need. Customers are able to make appointments and donate money to Kind Cuts by visiting williamstonbarbershop.com. Keener said he decided to give back to the community because,

If you look good, you feel good and if you feel good you do good.  It’s so much easier for us to be able to recognize when a kid might not have the means or the parents don’t have the means or a guy might not have the money to come in and get that service, for us to just give it back and pay it forward that way.
