The Machine Shop helping those in need

When you think of the Machine Shop in Flint, you probably think of live bands, large crowds and fun times. But, now you can add generosity into the mix. The Machine Shop, along with some well known bands, will work to raise money, awareness and “hair” for some needy charities.

On Friday, September 26, Nuroksol, Given Six , and Fear Blind will be performing, while Studio 57 will will be on hand cuting off ponytails to donate to Locks of Love and Children with Hair Loss. Ponytails must be 6 inches or longer. Russ Mettler, from Crop Circle, is taking it one step further; he’s cutting his hair and is challenging any other local artists to donate their hair.

On Saturday, September 27, Crop Circle, and National recording artist Royal Bliss, from Salt Lake City, will perform.

Both nights, Pancho’s Tacos will be serving food and donating a portion of their proceeds to Wheels 4 Wheels which assists in purchasing handicapped accessible vehicles. In addition, Toys for Tots will be collecting new, unwrapped toys. The toys will be distributed as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community.
