Lavell White


This summer, Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma employee Lavell White has been delivering delicious food to children at the Edward L. Gaylord Downtown YMCA through the Summer Feeding Program. White enlisted in the United States Army and has begun training for boot camp.  Yesterday, he said saying goodbye to his dreadlocks and let the Y’s summer day campers give him a haircut to help him begin his new journey.

The kids gathered around Lavell, eagerly waiting for their turn to cut his hair.

 

Each of the campers got their turn to cut off a piece of hair.
  

 

Lavell’s barber was also on hand to finish Lavell’s haircut. He then gave some of the campers haircuts as well!
  

 

The end result? A much different hair-do for Lavell and a day of fun for the kids!

 

Lavell, we wish you well in your future with the Army!
