Fundraiser for JHenry's Barbershop
J. Henry’s Barber Shop caught fire at 10:54 p.m. Friday, November 12. The Orlando Fire Department believes the fire, which completely destroyed the barbershop, was the result of an electrical shortage as the result of an overloaded electrical outlet. The owner of J. Henry’s, John Henry, has since stated that he hopes to reopen again soon, though likely somewhere else nearby. You can help by making a donation here.
