CLINTON HILL -

Brooklyn Nets star Jarrett Allen teamed up with Levels Barbershop in Clinton Hill to provide free back-to-school haircuts for nearly 50 kids.

The kids came from a variety of community groups, including a nonprofit that helps kids whose parents are incarcerated. In addition to the free haircuts, the kids were also given new backpacks and school supplies.
