When Anthony Cymerys, 83, heard an inspiring sermon about serving those in need, he had to do something. Not content with just donating money or dropping off food, the retired real estate investor picked up his hair clippers and hit the streets.
For 26 years, Cymerys has made sure the homeless of Hartford, Conn. can feel proud about their appearance. Affectionately known as "Joe the Barber," he gives haircuts, shaves and massages all for the low, low price of a hug.
"It's all about inspiring people to do things for the least of our brothers," Cymerys told The Huffington Post.
It's a beautiful thing to see Jesus' words in Matthew 25:40 lived out so faithfully. This CBS report tells the story of "Joe the Barber."
