Generosity at its best

Krissy Bamer, owner of The Knook in downtown Quincy, went all out raising $1,300 for CASA and CAN. Bamer had her hair cut extremely short in order to fundraise for those local programs. “I really love this community and I really care about kids,” she said about her efforts. She said she chose those two programs to help families that could use some additional help, especially around the holidays beginning with Thanksgiving. Bamer took contributions for her cause either by the inches — meaning her hair — or flat donations. She also donated her dark locks of hair to charity. Photos by Victoria Metcalf
